Summary
"Born into slavery in [about] 1820, Harriet Tubman would later run away and help scores of other African American slaves escape to freedom in the North using the 'Underground Railroad.' A nurse, scout, and advisor during the American Civil War, Harriet co-led the Combahee River Raid, in which 700 slaves were liberated. After the war, Harriet became involved in women's suffrage, or the right to vote, and opened a retirement home for sick and elderly African Americans"--Amazon.com
