Transcript: tubman What's your presentation about? Tubman Middle age Harriet Tubman She belongs in the Hall of Fame because she was the most well-known of all the Underground Railroad's "conductors." She helped so many people escape from slavery without being caught by the guards. That truly shows that she was a brave and very courageous person. 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." She was a bondwoman who escaped from slavery in the South to become a leading abolitionist before the American Civil War. She led hundreds of bondsmen to freedom in the North along the route of the Underground Railroad—an elaborate secret network of safe houses organized for that purpose. Dogless Present all the details Dogless Frederick Douglass deserves to be in the Hall of Fame because he was an incredibly talented writer and orator who escaped slavery and brought the issue of slavery to the attention of people in the 1840s, 50s, and 60s. He should be noticed and honored for spreading awareness and stopping slavery. First off, he secretly taught himself how to read and worked hard to save up some money to escape from slavery. He was encouraged by William Loyd Garrison to speak, at first informally, then as a featured guest at the Anti-Slavery Society. Basically, he was trying to spread awareness to people by speaking to them publicly. He was the most prominent abolitionist and human rights leader of the nineteenth century. During the Civil War, he advised President Lincoln to let former slaves fight for the North, and helped organize two black regiments in Massachusetts. Douglass worked zealously to make the war a direct confrontation with slavery.
