Summary
Harriet Tubman's fame as a conductor on the Underground Railroad led to her nickname, Moses. She displayed considerable courage leading fugitive slaves to freedom and, incredibly, never lost a passenger. Less well known is Tubman's service in the Union army as a scout and spy during the Civil War. This captivating volume uses Tubman's own remembrances as well as other primary sources to provide a greater understanding of her astonishing life story as well as major issues of the United States in the 1800s. Historic photographs, fact boxes, and sidebars add valuable information to the main text and appealing design
