Have slaves offered a $40,000 prize.Harriet Tubman

Have you ever wondered the one person who let everyone escape from slavery and have their rights? Harriet Tubman was the first black woman to use the underground railroad and helped most slaves escape.She was born on 1820 in Dorchester County Maryland and also grew up in the U.S. While she was going on this journey her parents were there along the way to support her and to remind her to never give up and to follow her dreams.          Harriet Tubman’s parents had always been there for her and when she faced problems they were an inspiration to her. Harriet Tubman married John Tubman where even though it had been planned it did not happen because it was not recognized by law. After the marriage was not recognized she remarried a man in 1869 named Nelson Davis .In the end after she helped most of the slaves escape and later the slaves offered a $40,000 prize.Harriet Tubman is one black woman the made a difference in the world for over a 1,000,000 slaves.      Harriet Tubman had made many influences to others lives but her biggest accomplishment was using the underground railroad to help her and the slaves escape safely. After she helped some of them escape she made sure everyone had a home and was safe. She escaped from slavery to fulfill her dreams as an abolitionist. After she helped the slaves run away everyone thought the underground railroad was a very smart way to transport from one place to another.Harriet is a one of a kind woman who took risks not just for herself but for others as well by fighting for them and to make sure they had their rights and freedom.      Harriet Tubman faced a lot of troubles in setting slaves free. She had to deal with the reality that she could get caught and killed at anytime. While she was helping a slave escape she got hit with a very heavy weight. The weight was thrown by the slave that she was helping escape but instead it hit Harriet. That caused her to have seizures and sleep attacks for the rest of her life. Even after that happened she remembered to keep on going and to never give up.      Harriet Tubman let go of her family just to make sure that everyone had the freedom they deserved to have. Did you know that others preferred calling her ¨Minty¨. As a sign of respect Harriet’s face is on the $20 bill in the U.S. After the marriage was settled with Davis they adopted a little girl named Gertie in 1874. After she escaped, she returned many times to rescue her family by using the safe underground railroad. Without Harriet Tubman slaves would still be in the U.S and would be torchered by their owners and would never have their freedom and rights.      Thanks to Harriet Tubman everyone had their rights and to be who they wanted to be and do what they wanted to do. Sadly she died March 10 1913 because she was suffering from pneumonia. She is an outstanding role model to all of humanity because she had the courage to fight for others and make her dream come true.
