Frederick Douglass statue

In the Capitol building in Washington D.C., every state is represented by a statue of a famous individual. In most cases, the individual was born in that state, or sometimes, they made that state their home. The District of Columbia will be recognised this month, and the statue will be of Frederick Douglass! Another public recognition of this great man. Douglass made D.C. his home, and was appointed Marshal of the District. He bought a house in Anacostia, and on a clear day, you can see for miles as the city stretches out beneath you.
