History Alive: Harriet Tubman

February 20, 6:00 PM

Clendenin Branch Library

Type: History Alive!
Age: All Ages
Topic: Historical Characters

Tubman was born into slavery in Maryland but escaped through the Underground Railroad in 1849. She then became the most famous leader of that network, aiding slaves in their escape to the free states and Canada. When the Civil War erupted, her underground experiences and knowledge of covert operations made her a valuable resource to federal officers. She served as a spy, nurse, scout, and guide for Union troops and was present at the ill-fated assault of Fort Wagner by the 54th Massachusetts in South Carolina. This event will be held at the Clendenin Community Center.
