I wonder what happened with harriet tubman

After the Civil War Harriet Tubman settled in Auburn, New York, where she opened a home for the aged and indigent, and continued to take an active role in support of women's rights.  She died of pneumonia on March 10, 1913.

This was an amazing book. I always knew Harriet Tubman was a hero, but I never knew all the details. I read this book in about 4 days, I loved it!
sarah | 3/17/2007 5:55 AM
This was a very inspiring book,it made me want to go out and do something to help the world.Harriet Tubman was a very great person who wanted equality and peace,but of course not everyone thought that way,which  in my oppinion is just one of the things that proves just how brave she really was for fighting slavery.I just wish that there were more Harriet Tubmans in the world.LONG LIVE HARRIET TUBMAN!!!!!!

I have learned so much about harriet tubman
ever since i started my report i have been learning more and more about her and since i had to write her quotations my favorite one is "every great dream begins begins with a dreamer, always remember, you have within you the strength,the patience and the passion to reach for the stars and change the world" I love it.
