Regarding Emily Tubman Monument. Emily Tubman was shrewd enough to realize that the Southern one-crop economy was headed for calamity, so she invested wisely in railroads and industries and more than doubled the value of her late husband’s estate.
 
Also see . . .  Georgia Women of Achievement. Emily Thomas Tubman died in 1885 at the age of 91 after a life distinguished by achievement and service. The scope of her giving and her foresight have had a far-reaching effect. (Submitted on August 6, 2008, by Mike Stroud of Bluffton, South Carolina.)
