Harriet Tubman was an American bondwoman who escaped from slavery in the South to become a leading abolitionist before the American Civil War. She successfully escaped slavery in 1849. Yet she returned many times to rescue both family members and non-relatives from the plantation system. She led hundreds to freedom in the North as the most famous "conductor" on the Underground Railroad, an elaborate secret network of safe houses organized for that purpose.
Harriet Tubman, widely known and well-respected while she was alive, became an American icon in the years after she died. A survey at the end of the 20th century named her as one of the most famous civilians in American history before the Civil War, 3rd only to Betsy Ross and Paul Revere.
In April 2016, the U.S. Treasury Department announced that Harriet Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson on the center of a new $20 bill. She continues to inspire generations of Americans struggling for civil rights with her bravery and bold action.

As slavery grew it became more and more controversial. As determined as the South was to keep it, the North was equally determined to get rid of it. Citizens of various persuasions actively participated in helping slaves find freedom through the Underground Railroad. This movement helped thousands of slaves find freedom by escaping the South to the North or even Canada.
