                         CONCURRENT RESOLUTION


 
 Expressing the sense of the Congress that Harriet Tubman should have 
been paid a pension for her service as a nurse and scout in the United 
                   States Army during the Civil War.

Whereas during the Civil War Harriet Tubman reported to General David Hunter at 
        Hilton Head, South Carolina, with a letter from Governor John Andrews of 
        Massachusetts allowing her to serve in the Union Army;
Whereas Harriet Tubman served at Hilton Head as a nurse, scout, spy, and cook;
Whereas in the spring of 1865, Harriet Tubman worked at the Freedman's hospital 
        in Fortress Monroe, Virginia;
Whereas Harriet Tubman's last husband, Nelson Davis, served in the United States 
        Colored Infantry under Captain James S. Thompson, beginning on September 
        25, 1863, and was discharged on November 10, 1865;
Whereas Harriet Tubman received a pension as the spouse of a deceased veteran;
Whereas Harriet Tubman requested a pension for her own service in the Union Army 
        during the Civil War, but never received one;
Whereas a bill that passed the House of Representatives in 1897 during the 55th 
        Congress (H.R. 4982) would have required that Harriet Tubman be placed 
        on the pension roll of the United States for her service as a nurse in 
        the United States Army and paid a pension at the rate of $25 each month 
        instead of all other pensions;
Whereas some females who served in the military during the Civil War received a 
        pension for their service, including Sarah Emma Edmonds Seelye and 
        Albert Cashier, each of whom posed as a male; and
Whereas Harriet Tubman died of pneumonia on March 10, 1913, and was buried at 
        Fort Hill Cemetery in Auburn, New York, with military honors: Now, 
        therefore, be it
    Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), 
That--
            (1) the Congress recognizes that Harriet Tubman served as a 
        nurse and scout in the United States Army during the Civil War; 
        and
            (2) it is the sense of the Congress that Harriet Tubman 
        should have been paid a pension at the rate of $25 each month 
        for her service in the United States Army.
