In Response To: Archeologists Uncover Tubman Raid ()
Tubman did participate in other raids and battles, with white and black troops. She apparently traveled along with Montgomery and Higginson, who were also in combat situations with white regiments. Some of these were in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. Tubman often served in a variety of roles - spy and scout, nurse, etc. She is quoted as saying she also helped bury the dead after battles. She also claimed to have witnessed the atack on Fort Wagner, made famous by the courage of the Mass. 54th. We know she did nurse the wounded after that battle. Other women also participated - mostly in service capacities as nurses, cooks, etc.
