Mt. Laurel Library will present “A Visit with Harriet Tubman” on Saturday, Aug. 9 at 2 p.m. The public is invited to this admission-free event.

Daisy Nelson Century from American History Theatre tells the story of Harriet Tubman. Born a slave, Tubman freed herself and many others, and served as a Union spy during the Civil War and an advocate for women’s rights after the war. This program is made possible by a Civil War 150 grant. No registration needed.

“Civil War 150: Exploring the War and Its Meaning through the Words of Those Who Lived It” is organized by the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History in partnership with The Library of America and has been made possible in part through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
