ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - The National Park Service has chosen a superintendent for the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National monument.
Cherie Butler was named the monument's first superintendent on Wednesday. She has been serving as the monument's acting superintendent since March of this year, when President Barack Obama established the monument.
The new monument is located on Maryland's Eastern Shore. It includes large sections of landscapes that are significant to Tubman's early life in Dorchester County.
