内战时的塔布曼

内战期间,塔布曼为联邦军担任护士、厨师和侦探。她带领奴隶沿着地下铁道逃亡的经验在战争时派上用场,因为她十分的了解这块土地。她征募一群前奴隶前来进行搜索敌军阵营所在地的工作并将邦联军队的一举一动回报给联邦军队。 1863年时,她与陆军上校詹姆斯蒙哥马利 (James Montgomery) 及约150名黑人将士准备对南卡罗来纳州发动炮艇袭击。因为她自侦察兵处取得的内线消息显示,联邦军的炮艇得以出其不意地袭击邦联反叛军。您认为奴隶们是如何回应此次行动?
 

During the Civil War, Tubman worked for the Union army as a nurse, a cook, and a spy. Her experience leading slaves along the Underground Railroad was especially helpful because she knew the land well. She recruited a group of former slaves to hunt for rebel camps and report on the movement of the Confederate troops. In 1863, she went with Colonel James Montgomery and about 150 black soldiers on a gunboat raid in South Carolina. Because she had inside information from her scouts, the Union gunboats were able to surprise the Confederate rebels. How do you think the slaves reacted to this activity?
