What kind of courage does it take for a fugitive slave to return to Port Royal SC to serve the Union army without pay – nurse the wounded – travel into Confederate South Carolina to spy and recruit slaves – and ultimately to lead soldiers with Colonel James Montgomery to raid rice plantations along the Combahee River freeing 700 or more slaves?

YEAH, THAT KIND OF COURAGE!

Harriet Tubman and the Combahee River Raid, a discussion led by Duff Bruce

This event is NOT a costumed performance. Harriet Tubman will be performed by Becky Stone in the History Alive Festival June 15 -25
