Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historic Park

is a 2 1/2 hour drive from Washington D.C.

 

To get there, drive east on Route 50 toward Annapolis, over the Bay Bridge and take a right on Route 16 in Cambridge Maryland. The address 4068 Golden Hill Road Church Creek Maryland. Harriet Tubman was born a slave in 1822. She was one of nine children and at the age of six, she was rented out to another master to care for children and catch muskrats in the marshlands along the Blackwater River. Harriet Tubman quote

Harriet Tubman was born a slave in 1822. She was one of nine children and at the age of six, she was rented out to another master to care for children and catch muskrats in the marshlands along the Blackwater River. She learned valuable skills navigating the waters on the eastern shore and in 1862, Tubman escaped slavery running to Philadelphia Pennsylvania but missed her family and friends. So between 1850 and 1860, Harriet Tubman went back to Maryland, 13 times, to rescue 70 of her family and friends and bring them to freedom. 

Harriet Tubman was barely 5 feet tall and an incredibly brave and courageous woman! The museum provides many examples of her bravery as she faced incredible odds. 

On June 1st, 1863 Harriet Tubman led an armed raid against Confederate soldiers in South Carolina. 

Union generals had heard the stories of Tubman navigating Marylands eastern shore and her bold efforts to free her family and friends. They asked her to help them along the Combahee River in South Carolina. She became the first woman in U.S. history to lead an armed raid in U.S. military history. She and the Second Colored Carolina Infantry destroyed the Confederate supply lines and freed 750 slaves along the Combahee River! 

Harriet Tubman was a Wonder Woman! 

Frederick Douglas quote about Tubman

I hope you have the opportunity to visit this beautiful museum. It is truly inspiring!

So true Joe Pryor and yet the story is inspirational! I kept thinking of the phrase, "Well behaved women rarely make history." She could have run to freedom and stayed in the North and lived her life. She said she was not happy being free alone without family and friends so she risked her life to bring them to safety. So amazing!
