In honor of Women’s History Month, meet Deborah Sampson—the first woman to enlist, fight, and be honorably discharged from the U.S. military. Start a conversation with Deborah—portrayed by Judith Kalaora, founder and artistic director of History At Play—to discover the incredible story of how she disguised her gender to join the American Revolution. Take a close look at her authentic colonial attire, listen to interactive tales from her upbringing to her soldiering, and learn a military drill!
