Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad

Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad

(2012)
A non fiction book by

 
Born a slave, Harriet Tubman was determined not to remain one. She escaped from her owners in Maryland on the Underground Railroad in 1849 and then fearlessly returned thirteen times to help guide family members and others to freedom as the most famous conductor of the Underground Railroad. As she proudly claimed, she "never lost a passenger." Her bravery served her well in the Union army, where she was a cook, a nurse, and then a spy. During and after the war, she helped hundreds of freed slaves begin new lives, and she later founded a home for elderly former slaves and became active in the women's suffrage movement. She was one of the best known women of her time.
