Description


Harriet Tubman (1822-1913) was an American political activist and abolitionist. Born a slave, she managed to escape and later embarked on 13 missions to liberate roughly 70 slaves using the Underground Railroad, a network of secret routes and safe houses created in the United States during the early to the mid-19th century for use by African American slaves in order to escape into free states or Canada. She notably acted as an armed scout and spy for the Union Army during the war and eventually took up the cause of women's suffrage. A remarkable story of one person's heroic deeds that will appeal to those with a keen interest in African-American history. Contents include: "Preface", "Some Scenes in the Life of Harriet Tubman by Sarah H. Bradford", "'Moses' Arrives with Six Passengers by William Still", and "Harriet Tubman by Benjamin Brawley". Brilliant Women are proudly publishing this brand new biography for the enjoyment of a new generation of readers.
