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
