"When I found that I had crossed that line, I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person. There was such a glory over everything." Harriet Tubman
Bird calls, freshly plowed fields, and the hum of mosquitoes recall the landscape that shaped Harriet Tubman’s life as an enslaved child, young woman, and freedom seeker. The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Monument and National Historical Park preserve these characteristics in her early home of Dorchester, Talbot, and Caroline Counties on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
