In 1869, Sarah Hopkins Bradford publishedScenes in the Life of Harriet Tubman. Though often disjointed, this account presented to the public a legendary figure of the Underground Railroad. In 1886, Bradford substantially rewrote the biography at the request of Tubman, who hoped its sales would raise enough funds for the building of a hospital for old and disabled colored people. This second edition,Harriet, the Moses of Her People,provided little new information, but arranged the jumbled narrative ofScenesin chronological order, providing a clearer account of Tubman's life.A DOCSOUTH BOOK.
