Background Information

The Iroquois were the people of several tribes in the Eastern United States and Canada, who controlled large areas before European settlement and allied themselves variously with French, British and Americans during their 18th century wars. Harriet Tubman was born a slave in Maryland and spent her years before the Civil War helping slaves escape on the Underground Railroad to freedom.
