Frederick Douglass declines invitation to the Inaugural Ceremonies due to the U.S. Marshall's presence, 1880

Frederick Douglass declines invitation to the Inaugural Ceremonies due to the U.S. Marshall's presence, 1880

Ratings: (0)|Views: 24|Likes:
Douglass, serving as a United States Marshal, replies to a letter from Colonel Corbin sent 12 November 1880. Corbin invited Douglass to serve on Inaugural Ceremony committees (for the inauguration of President James Garfield, to be held 4 March 1881). Corbin informed Douglass that the ceremonies will require reception, military encampment, music, recreation, and other committees. Douglass declines, stating that because of custom requiring U.S. Marshals to serve a prominent role in the ceremonies, he will wait until he is assigned a role by those in charge. Written on United States Marshal's Office stationery.
