Harriot tubmans life

Harriot Tubman is going to be on the $20 bill by 2020!!!

By holding her ground in a doorway, she shielded a fellow field hand from an angry master, who then hurled a two-pound weight. Missing its intended target, the weight struck Tubman on her head.

This shows the underground railroad. From Owensboro to Cincinnati was 205 miles which on foot took about 70 hours.

A reward collected by Southerners for Tubman's apprehension had reached a handsome $40,000 by 1856.
