A new sculpture by Dexter Benedict of William Henry Seward and Harriet Tubman is scheduled to be installed on May 17 outside the main branch of the Schenectady Public Library. It looks good to me.
Seward was a graduate of Union College in Schenectady, NY, and while I am not aware of any connection Tubman may have had with the city, she was definitely connected to Seward and his home town of Auburn, farther west in upstate New York. The National Historical Park there is a work in progress, which I hope to visit this year.
That's partly because I am writing a biography of Tubman's friend US Col. James Montgomery, under whose command she served on the Combahee River raid in 1863. Almost 19 months later, on yesterday's date in 1865, Sherman's army skirmished with Confederates in that area as it moved up through South Carolina.
