Harriet Tubman: A Glimpse into the Life of a Woman of Courage

As you are probably aware by now, seats at the highly popular - and free! - Beaufort History Museum/Beaufort County Library local history series go quickly. As of this writing (3/23/2017 4:30pm), there are only 23 seats left. Register and be sure to print out your ticket and bring it along with you on the day of the program: https://beauforthistorymuseum.wildapricot.org/event-2499875 Closed when full.

Hear about Harriet Tubman’s (aka, Araminta Ross) life as a slave, her escape to freedom, and her work with the Underground Railroad. You’ll learn how she helped to liberate hundreds of Lowcountry slaves in the Combahee Raid during the Civil War and about her work after the war as a humanitarian, suffragette and friend to the indigent.
