Harriet Tubman
By Mary L. Bushong
  

1     Have you ever thought what it would be like to be a slave? You would be owned by someone who could make you do whatever he wanted. You would have to do whatever you were told and would have no time for yourself. You would have to work even if you were tired or sick. You could be taken away from your family at any time. It would not be a happy life.
 
2     Harriet Ross was born in the state of Maryland in 1820. Both of her parents were slaves. A man who had a plantation owned them, but he also rented out or sold his slaves to other people. When Harriet was just five years old, she began work as a house servant.
 
3     One day when she was fifteen years old, she tried to help another slave who was about to be punished by the overseer. (An overseer is a man who made sure the slaves did their work.) He threw a heavy lead weight, which missed the other slave and hit Harriet in the head. She never completely recovered. For the rest of her life she suffered from blackouts, headaches, and seizures.
