Harriet Tubman, General, Scout and Spy. Music by: The Magills.
Hear her stories of courage – ask ther how she survived. You’ll laugh – you’ll cry – you’ll have lots of questions. And they’ll be answered.
Bring your stories. Share your experiences. Get inspired. Because it’s not just history – it’s personal.
Harriet Tubman is best known for escaping slavery and helping others to do the same along the famed Underground Railroad. But no single act in Tubman’s life would free more people than the Combahee River Raid, right here in South Carolina.
What kind of courage does it take for a fugitive slave to return to the South to serve the Union army without pay – nurse the wounded – sneak into Confederate South Carolina to spy and recruit slaves – and ultimately lead soldiers with Col James Montgomery to raid rice plantations along the Combahee River in South Carolina freeing 700 or more slaves?
Hear her stories of courage – ask her how she survived.
