"On Matthewstown Road outside of Easton, near Tuckahoe, is a marker for the farm that was the 1818 birthplace of slave-turned-abolitionist statesman Frederick Douglass. Harriet Tubman, one of the leaders of the pre-Civil War "Underground Railroad," was a slave on a plantation near Oxford, 10 miles southwest of Easton on Maryland Highway 333."
