    Meet and Greet with Deborah Sampson

    The New York Historical Society hosts a Meet and Greet with Deborah Sampson on March 31, 11am-4pm. 

    Deborah Sampson, the first woman to enlist, to fight, and to be honorably discharged from the American military captivates audiences in an hour-long program chronicling her life. An indentured servant by age five, Deborah grew up in a man's world, where women were naught but second-class citizens. Without the ability to vote or to own property, Deborah knew her options were limited; breaking the rules may be necessary to accomplish a greater goal in life.

    Discuss Deborah Sampson's arduous upbringing, one and a half years of active combat, and success as the first female professional soldier through interactive stories, military drills, and authentic colonial attire. A partnership with History at Play.

    RSVP here.
