Born Araminta Ross, Harriet Tubman lived as a slave on a Maryland plantation. Frequently threatened, beaten, whipped, and starved, Ms. Tubman’s indomitable spirit could not be broken. But even these daunting physical obstacles could not keep her from freeing herself and freeing others from slavery. The brave woman who rescued more than seventy slaves using the Underground Railroad declared, “I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger.” Harriet Tubman takes each and every audience member along for this ride.  Ms. Tubman was both a Union spy during the Civil War as well as a nurse and conductor on the Underground Railroad.
