Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman was born into slavery in Maryland in about 1822. She escaped from slavery by fleeing to Philadelphia in 1849, and was determined to also free her family and others. She made 19 trips to Maryland, freeing 300 people. During the Civil War, she was an armed scout and spy for the Union Army. Tubman was the first woman to lead an armed expedition in the war; she freed over 750 slaves with her Combahee River Raid. In her later years, she fought for women’s right to vote.
