Harriet Tubman was born a slave on a farm on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. As she grew up, she began to learn about freedom and equality, and longed to be free. She carefully planned her escape, and one day, she took off in search of freedom for herself. Later, she would make this trip many times over, with family, friends, and strangers, all willing to leave their bondage behind to obtain their own freedom. She safely delivered everyone to their new destinations, and never lost one person on their journey. Learn what Harriet did after her time as a conductor on the Underground Railroad ended, and how she continued to help others throughout her entire life.

About the Author
Janice Aisquith grew up and lived in the state of Maryland for most of her life. As a young person, she had a natural curiosity about historical places she would visit with her family, and often wondered what life was like for the people who lived there during that time. Even though Maryland is smaller in size than most of our other states, it has contributed much to our Nation's history. It is here that her love for historical biographies began.
Over the years, Janice has traveled extensively throughout the United States, gathering facts along the way about many interesting people, and the history of some of the colorful cities and towns they hail from. Follow along with her as she shines the light on these fascinating stories of everyday people, and what they accomplished, to secure their places in the history of our great country.
