    Frederick Douglass was a prominent black abolitionist. In contrast to William Lloyd(?) Garrison, he was not an extremist. He wanted to use politics to gain an advantage, compared to the militaristic tactics of Garrison (that soon got him dragged down the street by the Broadcloth mob).

    Clara Barton was a female medic (forgot whether she was on Union or Confederate).

    I've never heard of the U.S.S. Carondelet. Sorry.

    Humm... I think you got the wrong forum,

    Try http://www.historychannel.com/discuss/discuss.html [Broken]

    I wouldn't go there and ask for homework help on a Physcis problem, but certianly would for a history question.
