A Revolution of Her Own! Deborah Sampson
In the final years of the American Revolution, a self-educated woman named Deborah Sampson felt a higher calling. She bound her chest, tied back her hair and enlisted in the 4th Massachusetts Regiment of the Continental Army as “Robert Shurtleff.” In this special performance of A Revolution of Her Own, the American Heroine takes you back in time!
