This text presents a reproduction of Sarah Hopkins Bradford's rewritten biography of Harriet Tubman. Araminta 𠄬Harriet” Tubman (1822–1913) was a fugitive slave. Her work as a conductor on the Underground Railroad turned her into a legend. Tubman escaped from slavery in 1849 and worked her way around Philadelphia and Canada and New York. In 1850 she returned to Maryland. During the Civil War she worked as a nurse and spy for the Union army in South Carolina and became known as General Tubman. After the war she returned to New York and became involved in the women's suffrage movement.
