Celebrating Harriet Tubman, iconic figure of the Underground Railroad
Today the church celebrates the life of Harriet Tubman, tireless abolitionist and freedom worker. One of many "conductors" on the Underground Railroad, Tubman is believed to have helped more than 300 humans bound in American slavery escape to freedom. During the Civil War Harriet Tubman worked for the Union as a cook, a nurse, and even a spy. After the war she settled in Auburn, New York, where she would spend the rest of her long life. She died on this day in 1913. Click the "Celebrating Harriet Tubman" link below to read more about this amazing person in history.
