Day 92 / 104 - A Woman in Uniform

My daughter ended her Essentials year with a two-page report and presentation on Deborah Sampson.  If you are unfamiliar, Deborah Sampson is the first American woman (that we know of) who impersonated a man in order to enlist in the army during the Revolutionary War.  She fought in battle for over two years while keeping her gender a secret.  Following her service, she was also the first American woman to go on a lecture tour as she traveled throughout New England telling her story.

The Faces of History assignment is always a fun way to end our Essentials year.
