Harriet Tubman - Black History. In 1849 Tubman fled Maryland, leaving behind her free husband of five years, John Tubman, and her parents, sisters, and brothers.

Harriet Tubman - Black History

“Mah people mus’ go free,” her constant refrain, suggests a determination uncommon among even the most militant slaves. She returned to the South at least nineteen times to lead her family and hundreds of other slaves to freedom via the Underground Railroad. Utilizing her native intelligence and drawing on her boundless courage, she eluded bounty hunters seeking a reward for her capture, which eventually went as high as forty thousand dollars. She never lost a fugitive or allowed one to turn back. Two things sustained her: the pistol at her side and her faith in God. Tubman collaborated with John Brown in 1858 in planning his raid on Harpers Ferry. Tubman’s resistance to slavery did not end with the outbreak of the Civil War. After the war, Tubman returned to Auburn, New York, and continued to help blacks forge new lives in freedom. The Atlantic slave trade: What too few textbooks told you - Anthony Hazard.
