    The above picture was discovered by historian Kate Clifford Larson, who saw the image in a photo album once owned by Tubman’s friend and fellow abolitionist Emily Howland. Larson told the Citizen, an Alabama paper, that the picture “surprised me, and I think it’s going to surprise a lot of people.”

    Larson estimates Tubman’s age in the photo to be between 43 and 46 years old.

    What’s remarkable about this photograph is that she’s so proud and dignified and beautiful,” Larson said. “She looks so young. This is the vibrant young Tubman just coming off her work during the Civil War. She’s building her life with her family in Auburn.”

    The photo will be auctioned at the Swann Galleries in New York City on March 30.

    The Voyage Back Home

    On this day, Feb. 6, 1820, the very first group of Black Americans returned to Africa.
    A group of nearly 90 brave men and women voyaged across the Atlantic on the Mayflower of Liberia (also known as The Elizabeth), a vessel that would leave from New York City to arrive in Sierra Leone just over a month later on March 9.
