The Tubman Command

“I had reasoned this out in my mind; there was one of two things I had a right to, liberty, or death; if I could not have one, I would have the other.”

Harriett Tubman is well known as the African American woman who started the underground railroad and liberated hundreds of slaves in the south during the Civil War. What you may not know is that Tubman also was a spy for the Union Army. In 1863, the north was losing to the Confederate Army so Harriett Tubman created a plan to free hundreds of slaves in Beaufort, South Carolina and have them join the Union Army. To do this, Harriett Tubman had to go behind enemy lines and hide her identity, as many plantation owners knew of her accomplishments by that time. This raid became the largest plantation raid in the Civil War and played a vital role in the victory of the north.
