"also in" in option E is redundant. Try substituting both the options D and E in the sentence, do you any improvement in sentence by using E ?
Grammatically E is correct, but is wordy. Without using "also in", the sentence can be corrected.

I agree with Bigoyal, 'D' is the right option because:
a) 'also' is redundant in 'E' and
b) these are activities that Harriet Tubman did, i.e.
helping to educate freedmen
supporting children and
assisting impoverished old people.
So, in fact, even 'in' in 'E' is not required..
