1883: American abolitionist and women's right activist Sojourner Truth dies at the age of 86 in Battle Creek, Michigan. Truth was born into slavery under the birth name Isabella Baumfree but escaped to freedom as an adult with her infant daughter in 1826. A year later, she went to court to recover her son, becoming the first black woman to win such a case against a white man.
