On the night of June 1, 1863, Harriet Tubman arrived on a ship in South Carolina with 150 men ready for battle. She was the first woman to led an armed military operation in the United States, and what happened in South Carolina that night would solidify Harriet Tubman as one of the greatest military strategists the world has ever seen. Known as the Combahee River Raid, what happened that evening changed the course of history and gives us a powerful example of what liberation can look like. Are you ready to dive in? The walk and talk is going to be fire! We will do Mama Harriet proud. You already know! #Weareharriet
