Lewis Charlton was born an American slave in 1814, and died a speaker in the temperance movement in England, and lived a very eventful life in between. Crippled at 14 months, he was freed in 1842, and founded a school after the Civil War for the education of 'Negro' children in Westminster, Maryland. What we know of his life comes from biographies published late in his life, census data from the time, and newspaper accounts of his book tour and lectures, until his death in Sheffield in 1888.
