14940 Freiligrath           Discovered 1995 Mar. 4 by F. Borngen at Tautenburg.
The German poet Ferdinand Freiligrath (1810-1876) pleaded in his poetry for democratic and social reforms and for liberty. Because he yearned for a national uprising, he was shadowed at times. At the end of his life, in Bismarck's time, he became a patriotic poet.
