Accomplishments of Harriet Tubman


accomplishments of Harriet Tubman

In 1844 she got permission from her master to marry John Tubman, a free black man. Afterwards, Tubman made the dangerous trip back to the South soon to rescue her brother and two other men. (She was born Araminta Ross; she later changed her first name to Harriet, in honor of her mother.) In 1849, in fear that she, along with the other slaves on the plantation, was to be sold, Tubman resolved to run away. She saved over 300 peoples lives and for that and all her other accomplishments she is very different from all other people. Seven years later she was sent to work in the fields. Law of 1850 had created federal commissioners in every county to support the return of runaways.

By the late 1850s a number of Northern states passed personal liberty laws that protected the rights of fugitive slaves. During the war she was as a scout, spy, and nurse for the United States Army. With some assistance from a friendly white woman, Tubman was on her way.

Harriet Tubman became involved in getting the the Manhattan Conspiracy rights of women, mostly of black women. An abolitionist named John Brown gave her the title General Tubman. To the task of illuminating the "difficult to document" life of the woman known as "Moses Clinton brings her deep immersion in Southern history, women's history and African-American history. Clinton is meticulous (without being annoying) in distinguishing the speculative from the known in Tubman's private life. Tubman had made the perilous trip to slave country 19 times by 1860, including one especially challenging journey in which she rescued her 70-year-old parents. In 1851 she rescued her brother, and in 1857 Harriet Tubman returned to Maryland and brought her parents to freedom.
