Unfortunately the many glaring errors and repeating unfounded stories as relating to the Combahee River Raid and Hariett Tubman brings into question the rest of the volume.
The authors really didn't do their homework. The raid originated in Beaufort, not Charleston Harbor, the Union forces didn't enter Charleston until the last days of the war in 1865.
The authors state the Federals brned and destroyed railroad bridges and confederate supplies. In fact the raid didn't come to within 3 miles of the railroad!
If one doesn't know their history, and don't do the proper research they shouldn't write the book.
