    Harriet Tubman was an illiterate slave who stole away from her master, then helped other slaves escape via the Underground Railroad. If she'd been caught, she would have been killed.

    Her nickname on the Underground Railroad was Moses because she led so many people to freedom.

    Do a search on the internet for more.
