Born Aramintha Ross, a slave in Maryland in the early 1800's, Harriet Tubman became the courageous rescuer of hundreds of slaves via the Underground Railroad. Tubman's remarkable life of over 90 years was packed with amazing adventures, bravery against all odds, and unwavering commitment to the freedom and dignity of African Americans. Sometimes called "Moses" or simply "The Conductor," Tubman could neither read nor write but spoke eloquently at numerous anti-slavery and women's rights rallies in the North. Appropriate for 1st grade and up.
