Harriet Tubman led raids to free slaves during the Civil War.
In September 1849, fearful that her owner was trying to sell her, Tubman and
two of her brothers briefly escaped, though they didn’t make it far. For
reasons still unknown, her brothers decided to turn back, forcing Tubman to
return with them. A few months later, Tubman set off again, this time on her
own, leaving her husband and family behind as she made her way north through
Delaware and Pennsylvania, stopping periodically at a series of hideouts
along the Underground Railroad, before settling in Philadelphia. In late
1850, after hearing of the upcoming sale of one of her nieces, Tubman headed
back down south, embarking on the first of nearly two dozen missions to help
other slaves escape as she had.
One of the most complicated myths about Tubman is the claim (first mentioned
in a 19th century biography) that she escorted more than 300 slaves to
freedom over the course of 19 missions. Tubman herself never used this
number, instead estimating that she had rescued around 50 people by
1860—mostly family members. Historians now believe that it’s likely that she
was personally responsible for ushering around 70 people to freedom along
the Underground Railroad in the decade before the Civil War.
