Mingle with Deborah Sampson

February 18 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Deborah Sampson, the first woman to professionally fight in and be honorably discharged from the American Military, captivates audiences in an Immersive Living History Experience chronicling her life. An indentured servant by age five, Deborah grew up in a man’s world, where women were naught but second-class British subjects. As a self-educated, masterless woman, she felt a higher calling, and in the final years of the American War for Independence, Deborah bound her chest, tied back her hair, and enlisted in the 4th Massachusetts Regiment of the Continental Army, as “Robert Shurtlieff.”
