Transcript: Harriet helped eight slaves from Dorchester, County plan an escape and was almost caught many times. An investigation took place to capture the group. What I Learned Priscilla Garcia Harriet Tubman Basic Information Harriet Tubman was born January 29, 1820 and was born into slavery and her parents were also slaves. Harriet married a free black man named John Tubman. Virtue Challenges Fortitude. Justice. Temperance. Prudence. Humility. I admire her courage because she helped African Americans escape knowing any minute she could get caught.
