Harriet Tubman’s daring raid

“This is about what all through the night and morning of June 2 when Harriet, Montgomery and the colored soldiers overran the Combahee.” Conrad Earl. In this brief summary of a daring raid led by Harriet Tubman and Colonel Montgomery is an exciting look at a lesser known skirmish at least for me during the American civil war. Despite what some historical revisionists say the US civil war was about slavery and it was great to read a story of Harriet Tubman in action.
