Land acquired last year to help Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Maryland withstand rising seas contains the location of the home of Harriet Tubman’s father. Archaeologists confirmed the news after finding artifacts dating back to the 1800s. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service takes its role in preserving and sharing history seriously and wishes to thank the state and federal partners who helped unearth this discovery.
