Meet Lord Fox
Lord Fox (1749-1806) was elected to the House of Commons in 1768 when he was only nineteen. A noted anti-slavery campaigner, Fox collaborated with Wilberforce to lead the fight against slavery. Unfortunately, Fox was taken ill after giving a passionate speech for abolition in the House of Commons. He died three months later on September 14, 1806, shortly before the slave trade in Britain was abolished. Like Pitt the Younger, he was unable to see his anti-slavery efforts come to fruition.
