DAY 1- Harriet Tubman, born March 1822 was an American abolitionist and political activist. Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and became a warrior in the freeing of slaves, using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad. Born in Maryland, Tubman was beaten and whipped by her various masters as a child. Early in life, she suffered a traumatic head wound. After her injury, Tubman began experiencing strange visions and vivid dreams, which she ascribed to premonitions from God. These experiences, combined with her Methodist upbringing, led her to become devoutly religious. In 1849, Tubman escaped to Philadelphia, then immediately returned to Maryland to rescue her family. Slowly, one group at a time, she brought relatives with her out of the state, and eventually guided dozens of other slaves to freedom. Traveling by night and in extreme secrecy, Tubman (or "Moses", as she was called) "never lost a passenger". During the American Civil War, she served as an armed scout and spy for the Union Army. The first woman to lead an armed expedition in the war, she guided the raid at Combahee Ferry, which liberated more than 700 slaves. After the war, she retired to the family home on property she had purchased in 1859 in Auburn, New York, where she cared for her aging parents. She was active in the women's suffrage movement until illness overtook her, and she had to be admitted to a home for elderly African Americans that she had helped to establish years earlier.
