Harriet Tubman's life
Harriet's young life to early teenage years
Harriet as a kid was called Minty. Minty lived with Old Rit and her father Ben. She played with the other kids until she was seven then she was sent off to work at a weavers house.She got sick there and she was sent back home. Then she was sent to miss Susan's house to work there. She was whipped every time the baby cried. Soon she ran away and she was whipped when she got back to miss Susan's house. Then she was sent back home and nursed because she had been whipped terribly. Later that year Minty watched a slave escape and was hit in the head by a two pound weight. She would have a scar from it forever. Then she was never called Minty again only Harriet.
