Why was Harriet Tubman's nickname Moses?

Because she led slaves to freedom paralleling the biblical story
where Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt.
She was called Moses (and if you ask me was very similar and deserved this title!) because she led people through the underground tunnel from slavery to freedom and safety!
