Merit Badge Help – Freedom Seekers #2

Since February is Black History Month, I thought I would feature badge helps from the Freedom Seekers badge each Friday during the month of February.

As American Heritage Girls, we learn about Harriet Tubman, but there were many other conductors on the Underground Railroad. Merit badge requirement #2 has the Tenderhearts research 3 famous conductors.

Here is a list of 10 conductors, besides Harriet Tubman, to get you started:
1.  Samuel Burris
2.  Levi Coffin
3.  John Fairfield
4.  Thomas Garret
5.  William Jackson
6.  John Parker
7. Reverend John and Jean Rankin
8.  Abraham Shadd
9.  Robert Smalls
10.  William Still

NOTE: The requirements have been simplified here. Please be sure to read the full text in the Girl Handbook to make sure you fully understand the requirements.
