Deborah Sampson, the first woman to fight in and be honorably discharged from the American Military, captivates audiences in an immersive living history 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. As a self-educated masterless woman, she felt a higher calling, and in the final years of the American Revolution, 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 in this unique performance in honor of Women’s History Month.

PLEASE NOTE: This special program will take place at the Pocantico Hills Fire Department
