A Revolution of Her Own: Deborah Samson Gannett
Deborah Samson Gannett, the first woman to enlist, to fight in, and to be honorably discharged from the American Military captivates audiences in an hour-long program chronicling her life. An indentured servant by the age of five, Mrs. Samson Gannett grew up in a man's world, where women were naught but second-class citizens. After ten years working as a farm hand, Mrs. Samson Gannett had grown strong and possessed the physical capabilities of her male counterparts. And then, on May 20, 1782, wearing an old soldier's uniform, Mrs. Samson Gannett bound her chest, tied back her hair, and walked over one hundred miles to a tavern, where she enlisted in the 4th Massachusetts Regiment of the Continental Army, under the alias "Robert Shurtlieff."
Experience Mrs. Deborah Samson Gannett's arduous upbringing, eighteen months of active combat service, and success as the first female professional soldier, through interactive stories and authentic colonial attire. Deborah's passion will take you back in time!
