Douglass was born a slave in 1818 in Talbot County, Md. He advised President Abraham Lincoln and was a voice for women’s rights as well as those of black Americans.

Boehner is calling the statue “a fitting tribute to one of the greatest Americans and voices for freedom who ever lived.”

The statue by Maryland artist Steve Weitzman portrays Douglass in his 50s.
