The weightcrushed her skull and caused her sleeping fits andheadaches that plagued her all her life. After the masterdied, it was rumored that the slaves were to be sent tothe Deep South.Tubman once said, “There was one or two things I hadright to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I wouldhave the other; for no man should take me alive; I shouldfight for my liberty as long as my strength lasted, andwhen the time come for me to go, the Lord would letthem take me.” 20
