Linchester Mill on the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Byway

Perhaps the Underground Railroad's most famous "conductor" was Harriet Tubman, born into slavery on Maryland's Eastern Shore and called "the Moses of Her People." After escaping slavery in 1849, Tubman returned 13 times over the course of a decade to guide about 70 people to freedom.
