There was one or two things I had a right to,
liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would
have the other; for no man should take me alive. . . .

"There was one or two things I had a right to, liberty or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other; for no man should take me alive."

Tubman was seriously injured by an angry overseer or master when she was a teenager. How do you think this incident might have affected her attitude toward slavery?



In Tubman's day, slavery was common not only in the United States, but throughout the world. In fact, slavery was an acceptable practice from ancient times on. How do you feel about slavery?
