Welcome to your learning resource.
Harriet Tubman was born into the oppression of slavery in 1820’s Maryland.
When she was 12 years old, abuse from a slave owner gave her a concussion that gave her narcolepsy, a sickness that caused her to fall asleep at random, have intense headaches, and visions.
When she became an adult, she escaped from slavery and fled farther north out of fear of being sold into the deep south.
With the help of abolitionists Harriet Tubman discovered a system of escape for runaway slaves called the Underground Railroad, and used it to help free her family and many other slaves from slavery.
Her bravery and determination gave many other slaves the courage and knowledge to escape to the north.
