Harriet Tubman was an American abolitionist and social activist, who saved hundreds of people from enslavement in the South using the network of safehouses known as the Underground Railroad. Tubman was the first woman to lead an armed expedition in war, and guided the raid at Combahee Ferry, which liberated more than 700 enslaved people. She lived until she was approximately 90 years old and passed away in Auburn, NY, where she was laid to rest in Fort Hill Cemetery.
Born into slavery, Harriet Tubman knew the thirst for freedom. Inspired by rumors of an "underground railroad" that carried slaves to liberation, she dreamed of escaping the nightmarish existence of the Southern plantations and choosing a life of her own making. But after she finally did escape, Tubman made a decision born of profound courage and moral conviction: to go back and help those she'd left behind.

Araminta Ross was born a slave in Delaware in the early 19th century. Slavery meant that her family could be ripped apart at any time, and that she could be put to work in dangerous places and for abusive people. But north of the Mason-Dixon line, slavery was illegal. If she could run away and make it north without being caught or killed, she'd be free. Facing enormous danger, Araminta made it, and once free, she changed her name to Harriet Tubman. Tubman spent the rest of her life helping slaves run away like she did, every time taking her life in her hands.
