Presented by Laurie King, Assistant Conservator, USS Monitor Project
Harriet Tubman is most commonly known for her actions as a conductor in the Underground Railroad, repeatedly crossing into slave territory to lead enslaved friends and families to freedom. However, this is only one part of Tubman’s life. Between her work as an abolitionist and humanitarian, and serving as a nurse, scout and spy for the Union Army, Tubman spent her life fighting for freedom and justice. Join Laurie King as she delves into the life of Harriet Tubman and explores the endeavors of this American heroine.
