Harriet Tubman was an extraordinary African-American woman who freed herself from slavery by running away from Maryland to Philadelphia in 1849. In 1850, when the Fugitive Slave Act made it illegal to help a runaway slave, Tubman decided to join the "Underground Railroad," the network of people who helped slaves to their freedom.
