Petticoat Patriot: A Woman in the Continental Army

March 3, 2014

Petticoat Patriot: A Woman in the Continental Army.   Joan Gatturna presents this living history program on Deborah Sampson, a patriot who left her petticoats behind. Disguised as a young man, she enlisted in the Continental Army during the American Revolution and served undetected for 17 months. She broke ground in her middle years when, as a wife and mother, she embarked on a lecture tour relating her war experiences. She became the first woman to be awarded an honorable discharge from an American Army and the first woman to be awarded a military pension for enlisted service.

New Hampshire Humanities Council is a programming and grant-making organization that receives support from the NEH.
