Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman was an American bondwoman who escaped from slavery in the South to become a leading abolitionist before the American Civil War. She was born in Maryland in 1820, and successfully escaped in 1849. Yet she returned many times to rescue both family members and non-relatives from the plantation system. She led hundreds to freedom in the North as the most famous "conductor" on the Underground Railroad, an elaborate secret network of safe houses organized for that purpose

Whether she was helping slaves, soldiers, or the disadvantaged, Harriet Tubman seemed to have the need to bring people out of their troubles. She clearly accomplished this by freeing slaves, helping the wounded, and taking care of the disadvantaged. Based on these facts, Harriet Tubman’s greatest achievement can easily be recognized as helping blacks get to freedom.

Lasting Impact

Harriet Tubman, widely known and well-respected while she was alive, became an American icon in the years after she died. A survey at the end of the 20th century named her as one of the most famous civilians in American history before the Civil War
