Harriet Tubman was an African American abolitionist, humanitarian, and Union spy during the Civil War. Born into slavery in Dorchester County, Tubman later escaped and became a leader of the Underground Railroad, the network of routes and safe houses used by those fleeing from slavery. Tubman is widely recognized as an American hero who shepherded numerous slaves to freedom. To commemorate the centennial of her passing, the museum presents this exhibition of artwork inspired by her life and legacy.
