Harriet Tubman Research Paper
Tubman guided an unidentified group of 11 fugitives, possibly including the Bowleys and several others she had helped rescue earlier, northward.
Her act of defiance became a historical symbol, later cited when Rosa Parks refused to move from a bus seat.
Tubman conducted her last rescue mission.
Tubman was introduced to the abolitionist John Brown, an insurgent who advocated the use of violence to destroy slavery in the United States.
