A clipping from The Philadelphia Tribune featuring a reproduction of John G. Darby's woodcut engraving portrait of Harriet Tubman. The image has been cropped from the original full-length portrait which depicts Tubman standing, holding a rifle with Civil War tents in the background.

Above is the first two columns of the accompanying article with the headline "Spoken history: / Harriet Tubman" and beneath is the caption [Harriet Tubman].
