Shouldn't it be "moral persuasion" rather than "sausion"?

Well I never, I was enough unsure to leave a ? in the title.
Good article BTW...
Tune of many lyrics

Great article. I was fascinated to hear the origins of "John Brown's Body". I first heard the tune sung with very different words by ex RAF servicemen ("He landed on the tarmac like a lump of strawberry jam and he ain't going to fly no more, gory, gory what a [expletive] a way to go..."). Okay, that was a bit of a side track. I was really writing to say I can't see any h2g2 entry for Frederick Douglass, which I think is a bit of an omission - I don't mind having a go at one, but I'm not the best equipped to tackle it myself, anyone out there with some expertise want to give it a go?
