Harriet Tubman

"I can say what most conducters cant say- I never run my train off the track and i never lost a passenger."-Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman found the Underground Railroad. The Underground Railroad was a lifeline for slaves escaping to freedom. She was undoubtably one of its most famous conductors.

1849- escape. This was when Harriet Tubman escaped from being enslaved. 1850- Conductor: In September of the same year, Harriet was made an official "conductor" of the UGRR. This meant that she knew all the routes to free territory and she had to take an oath of silence so the secret of the Underground Railroad would be kept secret. 1851- Canada. Harriet's third trip was in September 1851. She went to get her husband, John, but he had remarried and did not want to leave. So she went back up North. Harriet went to Garret's house and found there were more passangers to rescue than anticipated.... Eventually she saves more than 300 people.
