Harriet Tubman - Maverick

Harriet Tubman helped free slaves
Determination gave her the strength 
To break the law
And have slaves crawl
Through tunnels to make their escape -
She risked her life every day

    well, maybe Grandma MOses was a painter. But it seems like harriet tubman had a similar nickname?

    I just love GRANDMA MOSES. That's harriet tubman, right? I show that movie to my students. Why didn't I think to do her? she was truly a maverick. I hope this does well.
