Lewis Henry Douglass was the son of Frederick and Anna Douglass. During the Civil War, Lewis enlisted in the Union army. He was a firm supporter of his father and his legacy.
“Lewis was a proud army veteran and aspired in every way for his father’s kind of dignity and self-assertion. But jobs and respect were not easily achieved for a young black man in post-Civil War America.”
Lewis Henry Douglass died on September 19, 1908 at the age of 67. He was originally buried in Columbian Harmony Cemetery in D.C. but that cemetery was disbanded. His body was relocated to National Harmony Memorial Park Cemetery in Hyattsville, MD in 1960. Lewis shares a headstone with his younger brother Charles.
