The first of which is Harriet Tubman. Tubman was a strong-willed individual who was ”often referred to as “the Moses of her people” (Leichchner).

The Significance of Harriet Tubman and Harriet Beecher Stowe’s involvement in the Underground Railroad (as part of the Abolitionist Movement, 1850-1860) The Underground Railroad is not what it may appear in its most literal sense; it is in fact a symbolical term for the two hundred year long struggle to break free from slavery in the U.S. It encompasses every slave who tried to escape and every free person who helped them to do so. The origins of the railroad are hidden in obscurity yet eventually it expanded into one of the earliest Civil Rights movements in the US. In this essay I will examine the Underground Railroad over a period of turbulence that spanned ten years and focus on some of the key figures involved and the significance of their roles. Harriet Tubman and Harriet Breecher Stowe were both central to the movement during this time and although they focused their attention on vastly different areas of the Railroad both women had a profound and positive impact.

Once her master had died in 1849 she made the decision to leave her Husband and her family to run for freedom, accomplishing many achievements.

It also was harsh for every slave that had to work every day till the sun goes down and even the children that were at least 10 had to work. As stated in the text, ''Between 1830 and 1860, life under slavery became even more difficult because the slave codes—the laws in the Southern states that controlled enslaved people—became more severe. '', that basically describes their whole amount of their slavery life that they suffered so much. But some people fought against slavery even thought it was slightly impossible to do that.
