HARRIET TUBMAN. Behind Enemy Lines – Civil War 1863.
Harriet Tubman’s contribution to the northern war effort during the Civil War was significant. She served in Beaufort and Hilton Head, South Carolina, under General Hunter and General Saxton, aka General Moses. She was active throughout the Civil War leading raids, acting as a nurse, a cook, and organizer, a spy, and a soldier. She was present at Fort Wagner when the Yankee troops advanced under Colonel Robert Gould Shaw. Generals sought out her expertise at guerrilla warfare and subterfuge. She was never paid the regular wages of a soldier, even though her contribution was as significant. She sings and soothes the suffering soldiers and sends word back home of their triumphs and their needs.
Support for programming by WV Humanities Council, History Alive! Program. Tubman is portrayed by Ilene Evans of Thomas, WV. The evening program begins at 7:00 p.m. at Pipestem Resort State Park Outdoor Amphitheater. There is no admission fee and the public is welcome.
