100 years before Rosa Parks there was Frances Ellen Watkins Harper (1825-1911). She was an abolitionist, poet and author. Born free in Baltimore, she had a prolific career, publishing her first book of poetry at age 20 and her first novel, the widely praised Iola Leroy, at age 67. In 1850, she became the first woman to teach sewing at the Union Seminary. In 1851, she helped blacks along the Underground Railroad on their way to Canada, running from the Democrats’ Fugitive Slave Law of 1850.
Most people believe that Lincoln sported a beard for the majority of his life, but in actuality he spent most of his life without facial hair. He only began growing his whiskers in 1860, during his run for president.
