We showcased HistoryView Virtual Field Trip Platform at Suffolk University during History Camp 2017

We also made a recording of “A Revolution of Her Own! The True Story of the American Heroine Deborah Samson [Sampson]”

— Judith Kalaora, Founder & Artistic Director of History At Play (on Twitter @HistoryAtPlay, Instagram @HistoryAtPlay, and Facebook @HistoryAtPlay).

Deborah Sampson, the first woman to enlist, to fight, and to be honorably discharged from the American Military, is portrayed in this program chronicling her life.  An indentured servant by age five, Deborah grew up in a man’s world, where women were naught but secondclass citizens.  As a self-educated master-less woman, she felt a higher calling, and on May 20, 1782, Deborah bound her chest, tied back her  hair, and enlisted in the 4th Massachusetts Regiment of the Continental Army as “Robert Shurtlieff.”  The American Heroine takes you back  in  time.
