Abstract:

"Harriet Tubman was a scout for the union army and led a successful raid up the Combahee River in South Carolina that freed 750 men, women, and children. This is the historical novel of her heroic raid"--Publisher's description.

May 1863. Out-generaled and out-gunned, a demoralized Union Army has pulled back with massive losses at the Battle of Chancellorsville. Fort Sumter, hated symbol of the Rebellion, taunts the American navy with its artillery and underwater mines. In Beaufort, South Carolina, Harriet Tubman-- hunted by Confederates, revered by slaves, code named Moses-- plots an expedition behind enemy lines to liberate hundreds of bondsmen and recruit them as soldiers. General David Hunter places her in charge of a team of black scouts, though skeptical of her plan. -- adapted from back cover
