John Murtha Unaware that Harriet Tubman Reached Freedom Through Pennsylvania's Underground Railroad

"There is no question that western Pennsylvania is a racist area." ~17 Year Congressman, John Murtha speaking about his own state

"I looked at my hands to see if I was the same person now I was free. There was such a glory through the trees and over the fields, and I felt like I was in heaven." ~Harriet Tubman's feelings as she crossed the border between Maryland (where she was a slave) and free Pennsylvania.

Maybe someone could get Murtha the Classics Comics version of it, so he could look at the pictures?
