(Meredith/WJLA) -- Archeologists are trying to dig out a piece of American history in the woods of Maryland -- the childhood home of Harriet Tubman.
For about a week now a team led by State Highway Administration Archeologist Julie Schablitsky has been slogging into the flooded woods of Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge on Maryland’s Eastern Shore on a mission to revive a forgotten history, WJLA reported.
“I think it’s possible we’re gonna find it,” says Schablistky hopefully.
Tubman led dozens of enslaved Africans to freedom in the 1800s.
