Frederick Douglass was a former slave, statesman, and leader of the American abolitionist movement. In 1863, during the American Civil War, Frederick Douglass was discussing with President Abraham Lincoln over the need of black Union soldiers being equally paid as white Union soldiers. He reasoned his stance when he was offended to hear that equal pay would "degrade" white soldiers. At this point, Atticus Kent visited Douglass and Lincoln to bring news of the success of Atlanta's capture by Union forces without a shot being fired, which is all done by Kent himself. Both Douglass and the President bore witness to Kent's demonstration of his powers. Though astonished, Douglass was concerned of Kent himself as he believed that a white man with incredible powers would convince white racists to use Kent as a living embodiment of white superiority over blacks. He shared this with Kent in which the latter reassured Douglass that he would prove to racist whites face-to-face that they were wrong, stating that despite his powers he was no better than anyone else.
