Following the Footsteps
of an American Legend
Born enslaved, but determined to live free,
Harriet Tubman made the dangerous trek to liberty.
Called the “Moses of Her People,” she returned again
and again, leading dozens of slaves to freedom.
We provide insights about the life and legacy
of Harriet Tubman and the surrounding history.
The Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park honors this remarkable woman and those who defied convention and the law to escape slavery. The state-of-the-art Visitor Center draws people into Tubman’s world as you experience the lives of enslaved people, their journey to freedom, and the challenges they faced adjusting to their new lives.
“…there was no one to welcome me to the land of freedom. I was a stranger in a strange land; and my home, after all, was down in Maryland, because my father, my mother, my brothers, and sisters, and friends were there. But I was free, and they should be free.”
Harriet Tubman to Sarah Bradford
in Scenes in the Life of Harriet Tubman, 1868
“I was the conductor of the Underground Railroad for eight years, and I can say what most conductors can't say — I never ran my train off the track and I never lost a passenger.”
