Tubman lecture next week in Mathews

{iamge_2} The Mathews County Historical Society will present its first lecture of 2019, “Harriet Tubman: Conductor, Spy, ‘General,’” on Wednesday, Feb. 20, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Kingston Parish House on Main Street, Mathews.

Laurie King, assistant conservator for the USS Monitor Project in Newport News, will present the lecture.

Tubman is most commonly known for her actions as a conductor in the Underground Railroad, repeatedly crossing into slave territory to lead enslaved friends and families to freedom.

The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, visit  ...
