Time for ACTION

Harriet's first trip to freedom did not go very well she went with her brother and they did not know where to go so they turned back. The next day she went off by her self and when she got to Louisiana she met a white woman and she helped her escape because she did not like that people were slaves she sent Harriet to another person that was against slavery and that just continued until she reached a town where slavery was against the law and she said that the sun was gold and it felt like she was in heaven so that day then she helped people get to the under ground rail road. When people were scared she pointed a gun at there heads and said go or you will die so they set off for freedom and that's how Harriet Tubman came to be so famous.
