More About Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad by David A. Adler
 
 
 
Overview

Born a slave, Harriet Tubman was determined not to
remain one. She escaped from her owners in Maryland on
the Underground Railroad in 1849 and then fearlessly
returned thirteen times to help guide family members
and others to freedom as the most famous conductor of
the Underground Railroad. As she proudly claimed, she
never lost a passenger. Her bravery served her well in
the Union army, where she was a cook, a nurse, and then
a spy. During and after the war, she helped hundreds of
freed slaves begin new lives, and she later founded a home
for elderly former slaves and became active in the women s
suffrage movement. She was one of the best known
women of her time. A time line, notes, excerpts from
primary sources, bibliography, and index are included.
