Where have you felt very, very out of place? Where did you have only a basic understanding of how to get the sustenance you needed, relying on the kindness of strangers and your own wits to get by—or maybe you had no understanding at all? Beyond a few days of traveling on a vacation or a mission excursion, few of us will have the experience of being an alien in a foreign land. Statue of Liberty National Monument commemorates those who gave up nearly everything they had and everything they knew to come to the United States.

How much are you willing to risk for your freedom? In the years leading up to the Civil War, enslaved people put their lives on the line when they attempted to escape to the northern states and freedom. Harriet Tubman made more than a dozen daring trips into the South to help more than 70 people escape to freedom. Maryland’s Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Historical Park honors the Underground Railroad’s most famous engineer and the people who risked everything for a better life.
