Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman was born into slavery in 1822 under the name Araminta Ross in Dorchester Country, Maryland. As a child, she sustained several head injuries caused by her masters, one being from a steel weight. These injuries changed her for the rest of her life because they at times blurred her vision, and gave her small siezures. This decresed her value as a slave tremendously. Tubman adopted her mother's first name later in life, which is why it was changed from Araminta. Tubman and her brothers then escaped from slavery in September of 1849, but her brothers forced her back, but Harriet later escaped without them. Once north, Tubman joined the fight against slavery. She majorly helped out by traveling through the underground railroad, which was a number of stops along the east coast to help slaves escape. Harriet dedicated her life to the antislavery movement by later becoming a nurse in the Civil War. Tubman lived to be around 90 and died on March 10, 1913.
