海丽特塔布曼 (Harriet Tubman) 是一个来自于马里兰州的逃跑奴隶,后来被誉为「奴隶的摩西」。冒着极大的风险,在短短10年内,帮助数以百计的奴隶通过「地下铁路」计画奔向自由。所谓的地下铁道是由那些散布各处的安全居所所建构而成的秘密网状系统,逃亡的奴隶可在前往北方的旅程中,在这些居所内暂作停留。稍后,她更成为废奴运动的领导人并于内战时,身任南卡罗来纳州内联邦军队的间谍及护士。

Harriet Tubman was a runaway slave from Maryland who became known as the "Moses of her people." Over the course of 10 years, and at great personal risk, she led hundreds of slaves to freedom along the Underground Railroad, a secret network of safe houses where runaway slaves could stay on their journey north to freedom. She later became a leader in the abolitionist movement, and during the Civil War she was a spy for the federal forces in South Carolina as well as a nurse.
