Buck Town Store in Bucktown, MD and Broodes Farm This is Harriet Tubman's Act of Resistance took place when she refused to help an overseer restrain an enslaved man to prevent his escape. The events that occurred at the Bucktown Store affected Tubman throughout her life. To prevent the enslaved man to escape, the overseer picked up a two-pound counter weight and threw it at the enslaved man. He missed and hit young teenage Tubman in the head, instead. The weight fractured a portion of her skull, and drove a piece of the shawl into her head. (Pictures from Patrick since Bucktown Store was not open for our tour.) In the local water near the farm,Harriet would have caught muskrats in this water as a young girl in all weather without the proper clothing in any season. Do you know what Patrick's tie pin represents that would tie into our tour to the area?
