Douglas failed to realize the enormity of the slave issue as well as opposition of slavery in the north. He opened the issue of letting states decide for themselves whether they should allow slavery. After slavery was voted in, a bloody insurrection between pro and anti slavery groups came about in Kansas. Douglas denounced the use of his rhetoric for political purposes and denounced President Buchanan who recognized Kansas as a slave state.

Frederick Douglass and Harriet Tubman were both instrumental in the fight to abolish slavery. They showed great admiration for each other as they fought for a common goal.
Frederick Douglass (1818-95) was a prominent American abolitionist, author and orator. Born a slave, Douglass escaped at age 20 and went on to become a world-renowned anti-slavery activist. Douglass's Role in the Civil War: African Americans were ready and willing to fight in the Civil War, but President Lincoln and Union leaders were not sure how they felt about enlisting black troops. By 1860, Douglass was well known for his efforts to end slavery and his skill at public speaking.
