Harriet Tubman–Celebrating Black History Month

Harriet Tubman refused to help a slave master restrain a fellow slave, and he threw a brick at her head. This injury led to epilepsy, narcolepsy, and severe headaches. Once she escaped slavery, Tubman led hundreds of slaves to freedom through the Underground Railroad. She was also a spy during the Civil War and started a home for the elderly. She led soldiers along with Colonel James Montgomery to raid rice plantations in South Carolina, freeing many of the slaves. John Brown called her “General Tubman.” She was the first woman in US history to lead a military expedition.
