How did she contribute to the end of slavery

She was one of the most famous conductors of the underground railroad. After she escaped the south herself she went back to rescue her sister and two kids. Then went back to rescue a few other relatives. She kept going back and forth between the north and south to rescue relatives and non-realitives.

What made her decide to keep going back to the south?

She kept going because... she was an escsped slave herself snd want to help others escape. Well of cuse she had relatives backa dn she had to help them to freedom. So she went back to help them and then started to help save the other slaves escape to freedom.

What her life was after ecaping slavery.

When she was going back to the north after her firt trip she found that her husband ha found another wife. after she rescued over 300 slaves she lved a somewhat normal life after that as a new free citizen of America. she later died on March 10, 1913 at the age of 91. She lived an intresting life.
She was an inspiration to all of us. No one that lives in the present can imagine what she had gone through. We should all learn from her that no one should say they live a bad life. Take a look at her life.
