Storyboard Text

  • 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.
