manumission’ was being incorporated into the institution of slavery where the masters had acquired the right to free their slaves on their death4. While Harriet was growing up, she had a tough childhood where she heard stories about how brutality concurred on anyone rebelling against slavery. Later when she turned six, she was sent to work at an inspected trap line for Mrs, Cook where she caught measles. In the age of seven, she was sent to Miss Susan where she was assigned the duty to look after a child, where she was often abused and whipped. It was here when she ran away to hide in a pigpen only to return to her master out of starvation. Afterwards, she was sent to do tough fieldwork which was tiring yet she found it comparatively more comforting than the tasks she was carrying earlier. It was here when she heard of the stories of slaves fleeing to Free states. However, by this time, due to controversies, the black was now prohibited from learning to read or write. One time when Harriet was helping another slave in escaping she got hit with a heavy weight on her head, which left sleeping seizures and severe headache as a mark on her health5. However, as a result, she started witnessing strong dreams about escaping. Eventually, Harriet`s father taught her with the ways through the woods, hoping that one day she`d be successful in escaping. . Harriet Tubman: The Conductor Of Underground Railroad.
