Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway and State Park

Harriet Tubman Centennial To mark 100 years since Harriet Tubman's passing, her homeland on Maryland’s Eastern Shore has launched a yearlong celebration of her life and legacy in 2013. Centennial events will happen throughout the year to remember this famed “conductor” of the Underground Railroad who led more than 70 enslaved people to freedom, served as a Civil War spy and nurse, and fought for women’s rights.
