A New York Times Bestselling Author
Harriet Tubman was one of the most important conductors on the underground railroad and hid the enslaved men, women, and children she rescued in the basement kitchens of Martha Wright and Frances Seward. Harriet worked for the Union Army as a nurse and spy. Martha organized women's rights and abolitionist conventions. Frances gave freedom seekers money and aided in their education. Many prominent figures are seen through the discerning eyes of these protagonists. So are debates about women's roles and rights during the abolition crusade, emancipation, and the arming of Black troops.
