The Underground Railroad’s best known conductor was also a suffragist, a warrior, and a caretaker. From her own self-emancipation on the eastern shore of Maryland to her heroic service during the Civil War, her advocacy for the rights of women and African Americans, and her work to care for the poor and homeless in her community…Harriet Tubman’s unswerving determination changed the lives of countless Americans, making her a towering figure in our nation’s history.
