Woolford Harrisville Road - Harriet Tubman's Eastern Shore of Maryland
USA

Woolford Harrisville Road Woolford Mace Cemetery Harriet Tubman was probably born nearby on Anthony Thompson’s plantation in 1822. Her father, Ben Ross, was a skilled timber foreman, married to Rit Green, who belonged to Thompson’s young stepson, Edward Brodess. Sometime after Brodessa reached adulthood, he moved Green and five of her children, including baby Araminta (Harriet Tubman) to his farm in Bucktown, but by 1840 Green was back living on Thompson’s farm (currently privately owned), where she and Ross remained until 1847. A large community of enslaved and free black families lived and worked between Harrisville and Whitemarsh Roads, creating an important social world for Tubman and her family.

More About USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
