"I'll meet you in de mornin', When you reach de promised land; On de oder side of Jordan, For I'm boun' for de promised land." Harriet Tubman was born a slave in 1821 near the eastern shore of Maryland. When she heard that her deceased master's property would be sold, she escaped to freedom in Pennsylvania. When she discovered what it was to be free, she wanted to help other people to freedom. She knew that her efforts would require money and therefore she worked part-time jobs until she had enough money for her first mission. She traveled to Baltimore and rescued her sister and her two children. She made at least fifteen trips to the south and lead at least 200 people to freedom.
