Harriet Tubman
  • Harriet Tubman is perhaps the most well-known of all the Underground Railroad's "conductors." During a ten-year span she made 19 trips into the South and escorted over 300 slaves to freedom. And, as she once proudly pointed out to Frederick Douglass, in all of her journeys she "never lost a single passenger.“

Harriet Tubman
  • Tubman was born a slave in Maryland's Dorchester County around 1820. At age five or six, she began to work as a house servant. Seven years later she was sent to work in the fields.

Harriet Tubman
  • While she was still in her early teens, she suffered an injury that would follow her for the rest of her life. Always ready to stand up for someone else, Tubman blocked a doorway to protect another field hand from an angry overseer. The overseer picked up and threw a two-pound weight at the field hand. It fell short, striking Tubman on the head. She never fully recovered from the blow, which subjected her to spells in which she would fall into a deep sleep.

A brilliant speaker, Douglass was asked by the American Anti-Slavery Society to engage in a tour of lectures, and so became recognized as one of America's first great black speakers.

pledge of allegiance
Pledge of Allegiance
  • In September 1892, The youth’s Companion magazine published a short patriotic oath by Francis Bellamy.The oath was written for students to recite on Columbus Day. It was sent to many schools and soon became a morning tradition. In 1942 Congress officially recognized the Pledge of Allegiance. Today, millions of students across the country still recite these words at the start of each school day.
