  • Details

    Presented by the Historical Society of Old Yarmouth on Sunday, March 12, at 2pm. Deborah Sampson, the first woman to fight in and be honorably discharged from the American Military, captivates audiences in an Immersive Living History Experience 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 an American Revolution, Deborah bound her chest, tied back her hair, and enlisted in the 4th Massachusetts Regiment of the Continental Army, as "Robert Shurtlieff." This program is sponsored in part by Cape Cod 5. Admission is $10. To register, visit website or pay at door. The Cultural Center of Cape Cod is located at 307 Old Main Street in South Yarmouth.
