A for me.

B) being an escaped slave herself, returned again and again to Maryland so as to guide:
being is awkward, so as to is redundant: to is enough,

(C) an escaped slave herself, returned again and again to Maryland for guiding
for guiding is not good, to guide is a better choice

D and E too awkward

I guess it was an obvious one between A and C.
But, why is to guide better that for guiding? Anyone?

I believe that "to + verb" is always better to describe an action.

A for me

usually :
verb + for : the reason, the cause
verb + to : the goal, the objective

in that case verb+to is logical
