Harriet later on grew up to be a older woman while still being forced to work while the laws still haven't changed. Therefore Harriet was fed up and wanted freedom for herself and all other slaves just like her so she decided to use all the skills and knowledge she had being a slave from when she was younger to create tunnels underground that would help many escape to freedom. She continued to build these tunnels with others and create plans to escape so that many slaves could follow her to the tunnels allowing them to be free. When the tunnels were finished she and the many other slaves began to walk through the tunnels hoping that they would make it all the way through to freedom. Harriets plan was to go through the tunnels until they made it to a farm where they would stop and then continue on their road. In spite of getting caught this journey to freedom took longer as the survivors took their time to get through alive. In the end many of the slaves stayed alive and made it to freedom after all
