Deborah Sampson, a trailblazing figure in American history, holds the distinction of being the first woman to enlist in the military, fight in battle, and receive an honorable discharge. Her remarkable life story unfolds in this program.

Born into servitude at the tender age of five, Deborah grew up in a society dominated by men, where women had limited rights. Despite her circumstances, she pursued self-education and felt a profound sense of purpose. On May 20, 1782, she took the bold step of binding her chest, concealing her identity, and enlisting in the 4th Massachusetts Regiment of the Continental Army, assuming the name ‘Robert Shurtlieff.’

Step back in time and join us as we delve into the extraordinary journey of this American Heroine.
