This story is about Harriet Tubman. She was a slave in Maryland and so was the rest of her family. One day Harriet told herself that she was sick of being a slave and that one day she would be free. Harriet's plan was to buy herself from her Master but her Master had asked $500 dollars for her, she did not have that kind of money. Harriet then decided to runaway she went through the Underground Railroad, which took her to freedom. Once Harriet reached freedom she told herself that she would become her peoples Moses and save them from the Pharaohs or their Master's. Harriet had went through the Underground Railroad 93 times and saved over 300 people on her trips. She had freed all of her family from slavery. Harriet then joined the Union Army and was a nurse. Abraham Lincoln then became President and passed a law to abolish slavery. Slaves were then freed everywhere and Harriet finally got to see her people free.
