Harriet was born and raised in Dorchester County, Maryland. Her owners abused her because she was resisting to work. The Underground Railroad was 90 miles to Philadelphia. “When I found I had crossed that line, I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. There was 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.” - Harriet Tubman ("Harriet Tubman Biography") The Underground Railroad helped her and other slaves be free.
