Harriet Tubman was a former slave who led a heroic struggle for her people in the civil war. An American Joan of Arc, she was more successful than any other person of her time in liberating African-Americans from slavery. Harriet Tubman, the Moses of Her People was originally published in 1886. It is a classic biography of one of America's most important women. The book was based on a collection of essays, Scenes in the Life of Harriet Tubman, compiled by Sarah Bradford, which was published in 1869. Both books were privately funded by Sarah Bradford. Profits went to Harriet Tubman who, in turn, housed and cared for indigents until her death in 1913.Keywords: Life Of Harriet Tubman Joan Of Arc Sarah Bradford Heroic Struggle African Americans Classic Biography Important Women Slavery Moses Civil War
