How many can she save before she is recaptured?

Harriet Tubman includes the following topics:

Susan B. Anthony includes the following topics:

Who was Susan B. Anthony?
What was the Underground Railroad?
What did the 15th Amendment do?
Did Anthony get a fair trial?

In 1887, Anne Sullivan finally reaches the six-year-old. Sullivan’s lessons will open Keller to the world – and the world to Keller . . .

Helen Keller inclues the following topics:
