Harriet Tubman

"Conductor of the Underground Railroad"

Harriet Tubman, also known as "The conductor of the Underground Railroad" was born in 1820 in Dorchester County , Maryland. She died in 1913 after helping three hundred slaves to freedom. She was also known as the "Moses of her people" because she freed her people like Moses freed his. She even helped her 70 year old parents get to freedom. If any slaves wanted to go back she pulled a gun out and said, "you'll be free or die a slave !" If someone go back the risk of Harriet Tubman  getting caught was higher. By 1852 she had a 40 thousand bounty out for her capture.
