While most of us can easily conjure up an image of the inimitable Underground Railroad champion Harriet Tubman, many don't know that Tubman spent time in Beaufort during the Civil War as a soldier and scout. To honor Tubman's time in the Lowcountry, former South Carolina General Assembly member Rev. Kenneth C. Hodges renamed the bridge over the Combahee River after Tubman, and to further honor her, there will be a monument erected in Beaufort at the Tabernacle Baptist Church where Hodges pastors.
