Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman was born to enslaved parents in Maryland. She was originally named Araminta Harriet Ross. Her nickname was "Minty". She grew up as a slave and was severely beaten. Harriet grew tired of how she was treated as a slave, and finally made the big move to escape slavery. She used a system known as the underground railroad, which took her nearly 90 miles to Philadelphia. Instead of staying safe in the North, she decided to put herself in danger to rescue her faimily and others who were still stuck in slavery. She ended up saving her family and 60 others using the underground railroad. Because of the Fugitive Slave Law, Tubman rerouted the Underground Railroad to Canada, where slavery is illegal.

"When I found I had crossed that line, I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. There was a such a glory over everything; the sun came like gold through the trees, and over the fields, and I felt like I was in Heaven."
