Harriet Tubman Google Logo Kicks Off Black History Month

Harriet TubmanToday’s Google logo celebrating one of our nation’s most famous abolitionist Harriet Tubman marks the beginning of Black History month.

Tubman is credited with rescuing more than 300 slaves via the Underground Railroad after she herself escaped from slavery, and began her life as a free woman in Philadelphia in 1849.

Employed by the Union Army first as a cook and nurse, Tubman would later become a spy for the North, working alongside Union General David Hunter to scout missions behind Confederate lines. She was also with Colonel James Montgomery when he attacked numerous Combahee River plantations, freeing hundreds of South Carolina slaves.

Later in  her life, Tubman became a leading suffragist, fighting for women’s rights from her home in Auburn, New York. She died in Auburn on March 10, 1913 and is buried in Fort Hill Cemetery with military honors for her contributions during the American Civil War.
