The great liberator and abolitionist: Harriet Tubman (March 1822–March 10, 1913). Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and subsequently made at least 13 missions to rescue approximately 70 enslaved people including family and friends using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. During the American Civil War she served as an armed scout and spy for the Union Army. In her later years Tubman was an activist in the movement for women’s suffrage.
