    She found Louisa in Brooklyn, secured a place for both children to live with her in Boston, and went to work as a nursemaid to the baby daughter of Mary Stace Willis, wife of the popular editor and poet, Nathaniel Parker Willis. After the war she settled in Auburn, New York, where she would spend the rest of her long life. After the war she worked to improve the conditions of the recently-freed slaves. She made the dangerous trip back to the South soon after to rescue her brother and two other men. According to the con men they had found the gold buried away. The con men were able to separate Harriet from her brother and husband.

    Disease ran rampant during the war, and Tubman was skilled in herbal medicine. It was the first time she enjoyed a reliable and steady income. Writing an unprecedented mixture of confession, self-justification, and societal expose, Harriet Jacobs turned her autobiography into a unique analysis of the myths and the realities that defined the situation of the African American woman and her relationship to nineteenth-century standards of womanhood. She took care of all their needs even though she was penniless. She saved money from various jobs, purchased a suit for him, and made her way south.
