    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.

    The legendary editor Horace Greeley was one of the most influential Americans of the 1800s. He founded and edited the New York Tribune, a substantial and very popular newspaper of the period.
    Greeley's opinions, and his daily decisions on what constituted news, impacted American life for decades.

    He wrote countless editorials and several books, and is perhaps best known for a famous quote he probably did not originate: “Go west, young man.” He eventually ran as a major candidate for president in 1872 but lost by a huge margin.

    For the next 30 years Greeley edited the newspaper, which came to have profound influence on the national debate. The dominant political issue of the day, was slavery, which Greeley adamantly and vocally opposed. In August 1862, he published an editorial titled “The Prayer of Twenty Millions” that called for the emancipation of the slaves, not realizing president Lincoln was making plans to do just that.

    Harriet Beecher Stowe's father Lyman Beecher, was a leading Congregationalist minister and the patriarch of a family committed to social justice. Stowe achieved national fame for her anti-slavery novel, "Uncle Tom’s Cabin" which fanned the flames of sectionalism before the Civil War. “I did not write it. God wrote it. I merely did his dictation.” --Harriet Beecher Stowe

    Along with their interest in literature, Harriet and Calvin Stowe shared a strong belief in abolition. "Uncle Tom's Cabin" was published as a in 1852 and quickly became a best seller. Sentimental and realistic by turns, the novel explored the cruelties of chattel slavery in the Upper and Lower South and exposed the moral ironies in the legal, religious, and social arguments of white apologists.

    Sojourner Truth was a prominent abolitionist and women’s rights activist. As a slave, living in NY, she had at least 3 of her children sold away from her. After escaping slavery, Truth embraced evangelical religion and became involved in moral reform and abolitionist work.

    She collected supplies for black regiments during the Civil War and immersed herself in advocating for freed people during the Reconstruction period. Truth was a powerful and impassioned speaker whose legacy of feminism and racial equality still resonates today.
