The Historical Figure that I chose is Harriet Tubman for my blog post because I think she is one of the most influential women in American History, because she freed more than 300 hundred slaves. Harriet did that by making 19 trips into the south all in a decade. Not only were these trips helpful to other slaves, they were also very dangerous because if she was caught, there would be extreme consequences for what she was doing. This not only shows how much of a selfless person Harriet was, it also showed that she had a brave heart. There is a reason she is one of the most famous Underground Railroad Heroes.
