SEC. 2. FINDINGS.

    Congress finds that--
            (1) Harriet Tubman was born into slavery on a plantation in 
        Dorchester County, Maryland, in 1821;
            (2) in 1849, Harriet Tubman escaped the plantation on foot, 
        using the North Star for direction and following a route 
        through Maryland, Delaware, and Pennsylvania to Philadelphia, 
        where she gained her freedom;
            (3) Harriet Tubman is an important figure in the history of 
        the United States, and is most famous for her role as a 
        ``conductor'' on the Underground Railroad, in which, as a 
        fugitive slave, she helped hundreds of enslaved individuals to 
        escape to freedom before and during the Civil War;
            (4) during the Civil War, Harriet Tubman served the Union 
        Army as a guide, spy, and nurse;

        the education of black children;
            (6) Harriet Tubman settled in Auburn, New York, in 1857, 
        and lived there until 1913;
            (7) while in Auburn, Harriet Tubman dedicated her life to 
        caring selflessly and tirelessly for people who could not care 
        for themselves, was an influential member of the community and 
        an active member of the Thompson Memorial A.M.E. Zion Church, 
        and established a home for the elderly;
            (8) Harriet Tubman was a friend of William Henry Seward, 
        who served as the Governor of and a Senator from the State of 
        New York and as Secretary of State under President Abraham 
        Lincoln;
            (9) 4 sites in Auburn that directly relate to Harriet
