St. Michaels is in Talbot County, Maryland. Frederick Douglass, one of the most important figures in American history, was born in Talbot County and spent eleven of his first twenty years here before seeking his freedom in New England. Three of those formative years were spent in St. Michaels and on farms in the surrounding area. The experiences Douglass had here led to his writing some of the greatest autobiographies and slave narratives in American literature. See the places that gave rise to this consequential figure who advocated abolition, emancipation, and equal justice.
