Harriet Tubman

Lasting Impact

Araminta Ross was born into slavery in 1819, in Dorchester County, Maryland. She was raised under extremely harsh conditions, with occasional whippings. She spent most of her time with her grandma who was too old for slave labor. Once she turned six years old, she was considered old enough to work and spent most of her childhood traveling back and forth to different families. Once Araminta turned eleven years old she took her mother’s name Harriet, and became Harriet Ross. In 1844, at the age twenty-five, Harriet married a man named John Tubman. For many years Harriet had wanted to escape and go north but, John insisted that she was fine where she was. Harriet refused to stay, and threatened to go without him, but he said that he would tell her master if she did. But that didn’t stop her, in 1849 Harriet Tubman escaped to Philadelphia at the age of 30.

After Harriet Tubman escaped slavery, she returned to slave-holding states several times, helping other slaves escape. Once the slaves had escaped, she would lead them to the northern states, and to Canada, so that they could be free. Being a runaway slave was not easy, there were rewards for their capture as well as ads placed in many areas. Whenever Harriet led a group to safety, she was also putting herself in great danger because there was a bounty out for her too.

What Harriet Tubman did was rescue over 300 slaves and without her, the world would be different than we know it
