        Harriet Tubman’s Home Designated as National Park | PBS NewsHour

        The National Park Service recently made Harriet Tubman's home in Auburn, New York a national park. Tubman became famous by acting as the conductor of the Underground Railroad. She was born into slavery around 1820 in Maryland, and eventually escaped to Pennsylvania at the age of 27. Following her own escape, Tubman returned to the South frequently to lead other slaves to freedom and to leave instructions for others seeking escape, earning the nickname “Moses.”
