Harriet Tubman escaped slavery and became a leading abolitionist and perhaps the most well-known Underground Railroad conductor. During a ten-year span she made 19 trips into the South and escorted over 300 slaves to freedom, and, as she once proudly pointed out to Frederick Douglass, in all her journeys she “never lost a single passenger”.
