The Doodle is 687 pixels wide, which make for one of the widest Google Doodles in a long time.

As you can see from the logo, it pictures Harriet Tubman working her way through the Underground Railroad. Harriet Tubman was recognized for helping to free over 70 people through 13 trips to the South. She also made a total of nineteen missions to rescue more than 300 slaves through Underground Railroad and other means.

In March 2013 President Obama signed a proclamation creating Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Monument Dorchester County, Maryland. It is a 11,750-acre National Park.
