Harriet Tubman

Happy Harriet Tubman day! Harriet Tubman was born into slavery in Maryland (yes in the north).  After her escape, she made many more trips to back to free others via the underground railroad. She also worked with the Union army as a spy and a nurse. She was also active in both civil rights and suffrage. There is a photograph of a young Harriet Tubman recently discovered.  She was one of the first women announced to be put on new redesigned U.S. currency.
