Tubman, Harriet, 1820–1913, American abolitionist, born in Dorchester, Maryland. She was born into slavery, but escaped to Philadelphia in 1849, and subsequently became one of the most successful “conductors” on the Underground Railroad. Returning to the South more than a dozen times, she is generally credited with leading more than 300 slaves including her parents and brother to freedom, sometimes forcing the timid ahead with a loaded revolver. She became a speaker on the anti-slavery lecture circuit and a friend of the principal abolitionists, and John Brown. During the Civil War, Tubman attached herself to the Union forces in coastal South Carolina, serving as a nurse, cook, laundress, scout, and spy, and in 1863 she played an important part in a raid that resulted in the freeing of more than 700 slaves. At Auburn, N.Y., her home for many years after the war, the Cayuga co. courthouse contains a tablet in her honor.
NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY/STUDENT COUNCIL
As winter continues, your Student Council is once again geared up to collect gently used/new coats and canned/packaged food for the less fortunate men, women and children in our community. We hope that you participate in our food and coat drive by donating to our cause. The collection boxes are in the foyer near the main office. With your help, we can ease dozens of Worcester families with the burden that comes with current cold season.
February NHS meeting today at the library.
