Did you know Harriet Tubman was a conductor on the Underground Railroad?

Yes. In 1849, Harriet Tubman escaped from slavery. From 1850 to 1860, she used the money she earned as a cook, dish washer, and cleaning woman to help other slaves escape. Harriet disguised herself as an old woman or as a man, and she used coded songs to tell the fugitive slaves when it was safe to come out. There was even a reward for $40,000 for the capture of Harriet Tubman, but she was never caught. In all, Harriet helped about 300 slaves, including her relatives, gain their freedom. As a conductor on the Underground Railroad, Harriet stated, "I never ran my train off the track. I never lost a passenger."

Question:
What year did Mahatma Gandhi lead the Salt March?

Answer:
1930.
At this time, India was under British rule. Mahatma Gandhi led nonviolent protests to end the British rule and gain self-government for India. As a way to tax the Indians, Britain passed a Salt Law which did not allow Indians to make their own salt. In 1930, Gandhi led a 250-mile march to the sea to make salt as a form of nonviolent protest. Did you know it took more than 24 days to complete the journey?
