Personal Fact of Stephen Douglas

Stephen Douglas was a US Senator known for the Freeport Doctrine. He was popularly known as Little Giant, because he was short in physique but was an eminent, political figure in the 19th century. He was actively involved in the Young America Movement that wanted to supplant the dogmas and the tenets of the past with a young and a more effective political system.

He also ran for President opposite, Abraham Lincoln, who was a Republican candidate, but failed to make it. As a party leader, he was known to have been extremely quick-witted and skillful, with great control over his oratory skills. He was dexterous in terms of political issues and worked towards popularizing the principle of popular sovereignty.

His long and fruitful career also involved him working for the US Senate, where he was responsible for settling slavery-related issues and also endorsed the Dred Scott decision. Apart from his political career, the Lincoln-Douglas Debates that he held time-and-again with his long-time rival, Abraham Lincoln, became some of the most famous in history and came to be known as the debates that defined America.
