[Title] Harriet Tubman is one of the most iconic and inspiring women in American history, yet there are many who don’t know her name. Born in the early 1820s on a plantation in Dorchester County, Maryland, Tubman, whose original name was Araminta Harriet Ross, was a daughter of enslaved parents. With little education, she worked on the fields for many hard years for Mary Pattison Brodess and Anthony Thompson. She endured lots of harsh physical violence.

However, she was unsatisfied with her escape, so she made it her life’s duty to bring her family to freedom, while doing so much more. All in all, Harriet Tubman was the most effective advocate and abolitionist.
