Liberty or death!

Harriet Tubman was a former slave who risked her life helping other slaves escape to freedom. She also worked as a nurse and a spy during the Civil War.

“I had reasoned this out in my mind,” she once said. “There was one of two things I had a right to: liberty or death. If I could not have one, I would have the other—for no man should take me alive. I would fight for my liberty as long as my strength lasted.”

Happy Fourth of July! Let us remember Harriet Tubman and continue to fight for liberty and justice in our country.
