Harriet Tubman was a combat soldier, nurse, and African-American leader most well known for saving thousands of slaves through the Underground Railroad. Some lesser know facts – the bounty of her head was $12,000 ($330,000 today). She cured dysentery in Union troops. She was the first woman to lead a combat assault in 1863. She also underwent brain surgery without anesthesia, choosing to chew on a bullet instead. REST IN POWER!
