Tubman was born into slavery in Maryland but escaped to freedom in 1849.
Harriet Tubman escaped slavery in 1849, making her way to the free state of Pennsylvania. Her journey to freedom involved great personal risk, as she traveled by night and relied on a network of sympathetic individuals who helped her along the way. Tubman became one of the most famous conductors on the Underground Railroad, making multiple trips back to the South to guide other slaves to freedom. She was known for her courage, resourcefulness, and commitment to helping others escape the bonds of slavery
Tubman was a vocal advocate for the abolition of slavery. During the Civil War, she served as a nurse, cook, and spy for the Union Army, contributing to the cause of ending slavery.
As stated, if you were not ready to go when Harriet was ready, she left you behind and took who she had to freedom. No matter what, when she was out, you better had been OUT!
