Unwavering Courage

in the Pursuit of Freedom

Created for the City of Wilmington, DE

Dedicated on October 3rd, 2012

This compelling scene embodies the perseverance and sacrifice of Harriet Tubman and those who assisted her in leading enslaved African Americans out of the South, a dangerous, clandestine operation known as the Underground Railroad. Commissioned by the City of Wilmington, Delaware, this monument includes Thomas Garrett, a Quaker abolitionist who provided supplies and a safe haven for the travelers. In her arms, Tubman carries a young child she drugged so it would sleep quietly and not reveal their presence to bounty hunters. Traveling during winter only at night, exhausted, cold and bewildered fugitives are slipping and sliding in the snow, following Tubman’s lead. Limited model editions are available for purchase.
