Being a slave in Dorchester County, Maryland, when Tubman was a child, she was beaten and whipped by her various masters. Early in life, she was injured on the head by a heavy-weight metal when an irate slave owner threw it into another slave. And this injury caused spells of hypersomnia occurring throughout her life.

She is known as an American abolitionist and political activist. We can say that her courage, ingenuity, and tenacity freed hundreds of slaves and changed the course of history. After escaping from slavery, she made 13 missions to rescue approximately 70 enslaved people, including 3 younger brother Ben, Henry and Robert, her parents, and friends. After meeting John Brown in 1858, Harriet Tubman helped him plan and recruit supporters for his 1859 raid on Harpers Ferry. During the American Civil War, she worked first as a cook and nurse, and then as an armed scout and spy for the Union Army. Harriet Tubman became the first woman who led an armed expedition in the war and guided the raid at Combahee Ferry. And this armed expedition liberated more than 700 slaves. After the war, she was active in the women’s suffrage movement until illness overtook her. In 1913, she died in a home for elderly African Americans that she had helped to establish years earlier.
