How many slaves did Harriet Tubman free?
A few hundred like 300-500
Harriet Tubman was instrumental in smuggling black American slaves up north. Many had to go all the way to Canada since the U.S. Federal Government passed the Fugitive Slave Act, which could deport slaves from free states back to their masters. Tubman was the Moses of black slaves in the United States.
I think that people think tht harriet tubman is a great american because of her acheivements of breaking out 300 slaves. For some people like racists people might think she was stupid and they hate her they wish they could had caught her before she set those many slaves free.to me if harriet tubman was still alive i would always ask her how she set them many slaves free and how she survive that head…
Harriet Tubman: Conductor of the Underground Railroad - Meet Amazing Americans. America's Library - Library of Congress. After Harriet Tubman escaped from slavery, she returned to slave-holding states many times to help other slaves escape. She led them safely to the northern free states and to Canada.
After escaping slavery herself, Harriet Tubman was one of many who helped slaves escape, She made 13 missions and helped free 70 slaves using the network of safe houses known as the underground railroad, but she did not start it. It is believed that Isaac T. Harper started it by hiding fugitive slaves in homes.
