D.

Eliminate A, B, and C because Tubman doesn't need the 's

Eliminate E because (apart from being awkward) "had maintained" is inconsistent with "has"; her contemporaries still maintained the awesome qualities that she had at the time, and presumably never changed their minds. Plus, they're all dead.

Ok, that's how I thought it out.
