About the event

Deborah Sampson, the first woman to enlist, fight, and be honorably discharged from the American Military captivates audiences in an hour-long program chronicling her life. An indentured servant by age five, Deborah grew up in a man's world, where women were naught but second-class citizens. Without the ability to vote or own property, Deborah knew her options were limited; breaking the rules may be necessary to accomplish a greater goal in life.

A Revolution of Her Own!™

As a self-educated woman, Deborah was the only schoolmarm in Middleborough, Massachusetts. After ten years working as a farm hand, Deborah was strong and possessed the physical capabilities of her male counterparts. And then, on May 23, in the final years of the Revolutionary War, Deborah bound her chest, tied back her hair, and, wearing male attire, enlisted in the Fourth Massachusetts Regiment of the Continental Army, under the alias "Robert Shurtlieff."

Experience Deborah Sampson's arduous upbringing, one and a half years of active combat, and success as the first female professional soldier through interactive stories and authentic colonial attire. Deborah's passion will take you back in time!

Running Time: Approx. 60 minutes. Followed by Q&A.
