In Response To: Re: Archeologists Uncover Tubman Raid ()
While I am heartened to see the information passed around about the Tubman raid it is unfortunate that the DOT wasn't the ones who uncovered this information. They are just taking credit! The DOT was informed of the site when they announced the bridge replacement. In fact as late as October, 10 days before the newspaper article some in the DOT were denying where exactly the raid took place. In addition the DOT has minimised the importance of the causeway where the raid took place. The causeway is approximately one mile long and bisects historic rice fields hand cleared from cypress swamps by slave labor in the early 1700's. The ferry site was established in 1715.
