Hi, I'm Riley McGwinn. Today I'm going back in time to watch one of our leaders in history, Harriett Tubman.
In a very short time we will be transported to 1849, Philadelphia, where Harriett escaped, but went back for her family.
In a very short time we will be transported to 1849, close by to Philadelphia where Tubman escaped, but went back to her family.
Harriet, also called, Moses, was a woman that helped dozens upon dozens of slaves to reach a safe spot before the fugitive slave act was enabled in 1850.
Harriet was living on a plantation, like most every slave did. She was harshly beat, which lead to her escape from her enslaved life. She made dozens of trips back to plantations to save more slaves.
Harriet had a $40,000 dead or alive bounty on her head, meaning she was at a high risk making trips through the underground railroad, and everywhere. She never once lost a traveler or allowed one to turn back.
The Fugitive Slave Act was passed September 18th, 1850. This is all the time we have for this time period today, a big thanks to Harriet Tubman for her work adn dedication for what is right.
