Harriet Tubman was a brave and very strong woman. She traveled very long ways to get herself, her family, and as much slaves as she could to freedom. She risked her life nineteen times as a "conductor" on the Underground Railroad. As I recall, she escaped to Pennsylvania from Maryland. No one really knows how many miles she had to travel to get to freedom when she escaped.
