Harriet Tubman was doing her work, and then all of the sudden there was a tall black man who sprinted away. A white man ran after, then without thinking Harriet followed closley behind. The white man told Harriet to help him beat the slave, but Harriet refused. Harriet then blocked the slave holder from beating the slave. With Harriet in his way the white man threw a heavy object at the run away slave, but missed. He nailed Harriet right in the head.
