Harriet Tubman was born into slavery in Dorchester County, Maryland. She was named Araminta Ross and her nickname was Minty. She changed her name to Harriet to honor her mother. When she was five years old, she was hired out to another family to take care of their baby. She was whipped by the master when the baby cried and by the time Harriet was twelve she was emotionally hurt and scarred. She wondered if she would ever be free. After the death of her master, the new master sold her to pick cotton in the South. It was hard work and Harriet was made to sleep on the floor. She wondered if she would ever have a purpose in life. Harriet got married to a free black man named John Tubman. In 1849, she escaped with her brothers from Maryland Plantation.
