Some say she faked her blindness, as an excuse to poison the slave hunters with polonium-210, named after her home country Poland.

Which member of ABBA was she?

Did her solo flight across the Atlantic happen before or after she discovered radium? I can never remember.

So many accomplishments, and all without her two main senses.

She really should do another bathtime photo shoot.

People have been looking for that homesite for years. Glad to see they've found it.

For those who have not visited the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad Museum, I highly recommend it. I spent about 2 hours there several years ago just looking and reading, and it shook the shiat out of me. We all know slavery was horrible but I've never ground my face into all the details of it that much before, the details not taught in schools.

It's near Blackwater Wildlife Refuge. You can make a day out of visitng both and you'll never regret it.

I didn't know she couldn't taste or smell.  Did she have Covid too?

You are sick, twisted person to make that kind of comment.

And I'm jealous you did it first.

In all seriousness, she had narcolepsy, so not only did she make about 30 trips to to free several hundred slaves, she id it in her sleep.

Women voters everywhere should visit her home

You know who else did Nazi?

Given that she could not hear, it is amazing she wrote that great diary.

Sad that she got lost though.

Those damn Australians! We will remember our history!

An actual superhero.

From a different article: "Historians say Tubman would have learned to navigate the nearby marshes and forests alongside her father, key lessons she would have used to liberate herself and others on her numerous journeys along the Underground Railroad."

Harriet Tubman features prominently in that show "Underground," it's good, you should check it out.

This matches what I heard.

Careful with the headlines!!  This generation of woke idiots will believe all of those things you wrote just because they saw it on the Internet and they don't want to be rejected by their peers for questioning woke dogma on Fark.

If she wasn't blind why did she get her plane lost over the Pacific?
