Black History Month: Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman

Harriet Tubman was an American abolitionist and social activist, who saved hundreds of people from enslavement in the South using the network of safehouses known as the Underground Railroad. Tubman was the first woman to lead an armed expedition in war, and guided the raid at Combahee Ferry, which liberated more than 700 enslaved people. She lived until she was approximately 90 years old and passed away in Auburn, NY, where she was laid to rest in Fort Hill Cemetery.
