Harriet Tubman died on March 10, 1913. She was buried in Fort Hill Cemetery, a short drive from her house. As Tubman aged, the sleeping invocations and suffering from her childhood head trauma continued to infect her. In the late 1890s, she experienced brain surgery at Boston's Massachusetts General Hospital. She had received no anesthesia for the procedure which opened up her skull, and raised it up, so it would feel more comfortable. Harriet Tubman became weak and died of pneumonia at age 93.
