Harriet Ann Jacobs (February 11, 1813 – March 7, 1897) was an African-American writer who escaped from slavery in North Carolina and became an abolitionist.
The following letter is from a very worthy, intelligent woman, who was herself a slave during twenty-five years, and who is now manifesting sympathy with her long-oppressed people by nursing them in the vicinity of our camps. How pitiful it is that members of any religious sect should come here, and return home to report their observations, without one word of sympathy for God's suffering poor!
It was densely crowded; and although some alarm was excited by the rafters giving way overhead, quiet was soon restored, and the people were deeply attentive. We are now collecting together the orphan children, of whom there are a great number, owing to the many deaths that have occurred of late. SS Keystone State On January 2, 1861 the Richmond Daily Dispatch carried a detailed description of the activities in Charleston Harbor. Thomas Garrett December 1, 1860 found Harriet Tubman busily helping more fugitive slaves escape towards freedom in the North. On this day 150 years ago, President Abraham Lincoln replied to an address praising him from workingmen of Manchester, England. Jacobs' book, Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, was published in 1861 under the pen name Linda Brent.
To do this, she not only relinquishes good wages in a family for many years strongly attached to her, but also liberally imparts from her own earnings to the destitute around her.


During the winter months, the small pox carried them off by hundreds; but now it has somewhat abated. In justice to the refugee women, I am bound to testify that I have never known them, in any one instance, refuse to shelter an orphan. These poor refugees undoubtedly have faults, as all human beings would have, under similar circumstances. We have a day-school of eighty scholars, and a large number attend our evening school—mostly adults.
In many cases, mothers who have five or six children of their own, without enough to feed and cover them, will readily receive these helpless little ones into their own poor hovels.
Some of them say to me, "The white men of the North have helped us thus far, and we want to help them. Saxton, who says they appear to him to be "extremely human." As to drunkenness, I have seen but one case.
Three colored men teach a school in this city for those who can afford to pay somewhat for instruction.
Many of them freely fed the soldiers at their own tables, and lodged them as comfortably as possible in their humble dwellings. As to stealing, I wish the writer in the New York Evangelist had made himself acquainted with the old slave-pen here, now used for a prison.


They have a large number of pupils, mostly children of colored citizens, but a few of the "little contrabands" attend their school. They have sent thousands and tens of thousands of dollars to different sections of the country, wherever these poor sufferers came within our lines. In return for their kindness and ever-ready service, they often receive insults, and sometimes beatings, and so they have learned to distrust those who wear the uniform of the U.S. The marriage law has been disregarded, from old habits formed in slavery, and from want of true friends to encourage them in the observance of it now. You know how warmly I have sympathized with the Northern army; all the more does it grieve me to see so many of them false to the principles of freedom. I wish the writer of that article could have been where I was last night, in our rough, little, poorly-built church.
