A Real American Hero

American Historical Hero, Deborah Sampson “In the character of a soldier” is a one woman theatrical play, starring Kirsten Eggers. Eggers chose quite a figure to portray.
Deborah Sampson was born in Plympton, Massachusetts. She was born on December 17, 1760.. We have heard many stories of war heroes throughout history, and until now, most of them have been about men. But in an unusual turn, we travel back in history to share a story told about a female who wanted to serve her country and show support for what many in her day, thought was a unnecessary war.
