Harriet Tubman was unconditionally committed to the abolition of slavery by any means, resulting in her willingness to help radical abolitionist John Brown prepare for his Harpers Ferry raid. She was the first woman to lead a military expedition in an American war, and she reinvented herself as a women's rights pioneer during the last part of her life.
