Harriet Tubman was born into slavery but escaped and then helped approximately seventy other families do the same through the Underground Railroad in an effort to help slaves escape to free States and to Canada during the Civil War. Because of her heroism and dedication, she became known 'Moses'. Later she became active in the suffragette movement and, though she lived her life in abject poverty, she never gave up the fight to help others.
