Black History Month: Honoring the Legacy of Harriet Tubman

In celebration of Black History Month we pay special tribute to antislavery crusader and Civil War veteran Harriet Tubman.

She is estimated to have helped several hundred enslaved people find freedom in Canada via the Underground Railroad and is said to have "never lost a passenger."

In her later life, though she had little money of her own, Tubman worked to house and feed the poor and became an important figure in the fight for women's suffrage.

Harriet Tubman became the first African American woman to appear on a U.S. postage stamp issued on February 1, 1978, the first in the Post Office's Black Heritage Series.
