Tubman used to be a slave on the Maryland plantation. When she was in her 20s, she successfully escaped slavery and joined the underground railway campaign to help the slaves escape from the south, becoming one of the most active leaders. After the American Civil War, Tubman took an active part in the feminist movement and died in 1913.
In fact, as early as the Obama administration, the US Treasury Department decided to print Tubman in US dollars, but the plan was delayed by the trump administration. (overseas website Liu Qiang)
