OA is D. I did not realize that 2 items of the past are used, so simple past and past perfect have to be used.
Thanks.

D.

'she' can only refer to "Tubman" and not to "Tubman's". Eliminate A B C.
First tense should be simple past and second tense should be past perfect to convey the right meaning. E past perfect first and present perfect in that order making it incorrect.

A,B and C are out as they have meaning error. D wins correct usage of had.

This can also be true in various cases-"E past perfect first and present perfect in that order making it incorrect."
