An inspiring addition to any decor, it is a powerful reminder of our nation's history. In the early 1830s, the term Underground Railroad came into use as the system that led enslaved African Americans to freedom. Harriet Tubman was one of the most well known conductors on the railroad who helped hundreds of others to escape slavery once she herself had escaped. As an abolitionist, suffragist, Civil War nurse, commander, and freedom agent, Tubman’s contribution to the causes of universal freedom and equality rank her among the nation’s most significant agents of change. After the war Tubman received a widow’s pension, later petitioning Congress for additional benefits for her own service to the U.S. Army. Eventually her claim was successful and she received an increase to her pension to twenty five dollars per month. Among its vast holdings, The National Archives keeps materials relating to the Underground Railroad, the pension claim and supporting documents that Harriet Tubman submitted to Congress, the bill granting the increase of her pension, along with a wealth of resources documenting the African American experience, and women’s history.

But just who was this remarkable woman? To John Brown, leader of the Harper's Ferry slave uprising, she was General Tubman. For the many slaves she led north to freedom, she was Moses. To the slaveholders who sought her capture, she was a thief and a trickster. To abolitionists, she was a prophet.Now, in a biography widely praised for its impeccable research and its compelling narrative, Harriet Tubman is revealed for the first time as a singular and complex character, a woman who defied simple categorization.A thrilling reading experience. It expands outward from Tubman's individual story to give a sweeping, historical vision of slavery. --NPR's Fresh AirAuthor: Catherine ClintonPublisher: Back Bay BooksPublished: 01/05/2005Pages: 304Binding Type: PaperbackWeight: 0.60lbsSize: 8.10h x 5.40w x 0.60dISBN: 9780316155946Accelerated Reader:Reading Level: 10.4Point Value: 15Interest Level: Upper GradeQuiz #/Name: 76710 / Harriet Tubman: The Road to FreedomReview Citation(s): Ingram Advance 01/01/2005 pg. 43New York Times 02/06/2005 pg. 26About the AuthorCatherine Clinton received an undergraduate degree in Afro-American Studies from Harvard University and a PhD in history from Princeton.
