What female born in the 1800's was full of bravery and determination? What female risked her life to save others? What female was a Conductor in the Underground Railroad, Spy for federal forces in South Carolina and a nurse during the Civil War? This female is known as Harriet Tubman.
Harriet Tubman is perhaps the most well-known of all the Underground Railroad conductors. Over a period of ten years, Harriet made 19 trips to the South and accompanied over 300 slaves to freedom. She once told one of her closest friends Frederick Douglass, that she was proud to have "never lost a single passenger."
Harriet Tubman was born at Edward Brodas plantation in Maryland sometime during the year 1820. She was born to Benjamin Ross and Harriet Greene. Her given name at birth was Araminta but she was often called "Minty" as a child. However, shortly after becoming an adult she named herself Harriet, after her mother. She was born into the life of slavery and for this reason, was completely illiterate throughout her entire life. At a very early age, Harriet was forced to work as a house servant. Later in her teenage years she was sent to work in the fields with all the other adult slaves.
When Harriet was 13, her overseer hit her in the head with a 2 pound weight which left her having narcoleptic seizures for the rest of her life. At the age of 25 Harriet married her first husband,a freeman named John Tubman. However, she still had to remain a slave for her owner.
