塔布曼的早年生活及脱逃过程

当亚诺米塔萝丝拒绝帮助他的主人惩罚另一位年轻奴隶时,她所蒙受的创伤将一辈子跟随着她。有一位年青人未经许可就自行前往商店,当他回来后,他的工头想要鞭打他并要求萝丝帮忙,但她拒绝他的要求。当那位年青人开始逃跑时,工头捡起一块沉重的铁镇朝着逃跑的年轻人拋过去,但那铁镇并没有打中年轻人,反而击中了萝丝。这块铁镇几乎粉碎萝丝的头骨并在她头上留下了一道深深的疤痕。她昏迷了数日,而她的余生都因抽搐而受苦。
 

As a slave, Araminta Ross was scarred for life when she refused to help in the punishment of another young slave. A young man had gone to the store without permission, and when he returned, the overseer wanted to whip him. He asked Ross to help but she refused. When the young man started to run away, the overseer picked up a heavy iron weight and threw it at him. He missed the young man and hit Ross instead. The weight nearly crushed her skull and left a deep scar. She was unconscious for days, and suffered from seizures for the rest of her life.
