Confederate site rededicated to Harriet Tubman
                               By JAMIE SCHARF and VANCE WOOD | February 15, 2018

The Baltimore City Council approved legislation on Feb. 5 to rededicate the site of a former Confederate monument to Harriet Tubman.

A portion of Wyman Park Dell, a park near Homewood Campus, will be named after Tubman, who was a Maryland-born slave and conductor of the Underground Railroad. In August 2017, the City removed four Confederate monuments, including a statue of Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson in Wyman Park Dell.
