Nothing Taste Sweeter Than Freedom


Historians suggest that it was September 17 1849 that Harriet Tubman escaped from slavery in Maryland. Along side her was 2 of her brothers. She would head north in but this would not be her last time in the south. Over the next 8 years she would return via use of the secret Underground Railroad helping 300 slaves to escape.

Harriet Tubman was also employed by the Union army in the US civil war. She would lead a raid helping to free hundreds of slaves during the Combahee River Raid. In the summer of 1869 Harriet would marry a civil war veteran Nelson Davis in Auburn NY. Tubman would live her life strongly supporting women's suffrage. She would pass during the winter of 1913 due to pnemonia. Her life would be recognized with a postage stamp in 1978.
