Mrs. Istamboulian’s Model
Frederick Douglass was a great American hero who fought for the freedom of the slaves. After Douglass’ escape from slavery, he found his purpose in working in the anti-slavery movement. For example, Douglass writes that “I spoke but a few moments, when I felt a degree of freedom, and said what I desired with considerable ease (para. 4). Additionally, he also sacrificed for the sake of the anti-slavery movement. For instance, Douglass explains that he could have died if he was caught (para. 4). He was also self-taught. According to Douglass’ autobiography, he found several different people who were willing to teach him to read.
Abraham Lincoln was similar to Frederick Douglass in several ways, but different in others. Lincoln and Douglass both fought for the freedom of slaves, but Lincoln did so by lead the nation in the Civil War. To demonstrate, Dr. Phineas D. Gurley writes that “Though our beloved President is slain, our beloved country is saved” (line 10). Likewise, Lincoln and Douglass both sacrificed for the anti-slavery cause; nevertheless, Lincoln lost his life because he was so dedicated to the anti-slavery cause. Similarly, both Douglass and Lincoln were self-taught, but Lincoln read as he did his chores, which shows his commitment.
