HARRIET TUBMAN
By : Chloe G.
For Black History Month I am writing about a
girl who was a civil rights leader and her
name is Harriet Tubman. She is a very
popular person that everyone should know. I
am going to talk about her life events, random
stuff about her, and what she did to become a
civil rights leader.
First, Harriet Tubman was born
in Maryland in 1820. She was also
born to enslaved parents. She was
also born with the other 9 children.
Her father was owned by Anthony
Thompson and her mother was
owned by Pattison Brodess. She
had a really hard time when she
was little but then she grew up. She
grew up as a slave. She also got
married to John Tubman in 1844 1851 but she again got married to a
different guy named Nelson Davies
in 1869 - 1888.
Next, I am going to talk about
stuff that is just random in her life. The
line between freedom and slavery
was hazy for Tubman and her family.
Harriet Tubman’s father, Ben, was
freed from slavery at the age of 45, as
stipulated in the will of a previous
owner. Nonetheless, Ben had few
options but to continue working as a
timber estimator and foreman for his
former owners. Although similar
manumission stipulations applied to
Rit and her children, the individuals
who owned the family chose not to
free them. Despite his free status,
Ben had little power to challenge their
decision.
Finally, Harriet Tubman made use
of the network known as the
Underground Railroad to travel nearly
90 miles to Philadelphia. She crossed
into the free state of Pennsylvania with
a feeling of relief and awe, and recalled
later: “When I found I had crossed that
line, I looked at my hands to see if I was
the same person. There was such a
glory over everything; the sun came like
gold through the trees, and over the
fields, and I felt like I was in Heaven.”
Rather than remaining in the safety of
the North, Tubman made it her mission
to rescue her family and others living in
slavery. She later then got hit with a 2
pound weight in the head when she
said no to her master and passed away.
In Conclusion, Harriet
Tubman saved al lot of
slaves to freedom and that
is brave of her to do. She
is a very important person.
People everywhere should
thank her for what she has
done. Her life events, her
random life events, and
how she became a civil
rights leader facts are
amazing, what a job well
done
