Araminta Ross, also known as Harriet Tubman, was born in Dorchester County, Md. She was an abolitionist who was born into slavery, yet risked her life to save many others. She escaped slavery and strived to build a way for other slaves to escape to freedom through the Underground Railroad. Tubman’s Underground Railroad helped slaves escaped from the upper south states.

Tubman’s lasting impact helped to spark a movement to do what is right no matter the consequences.

Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” 

– Harriet Tubman
