Washington’s small revolutionary army was an unlikely assortment of freedom fighters. Yet, there was one soldier who truly differed from the rest. That soldier was a woman. Inspired by concepts of equality for the common man, Deborah Sampson enlisted in the Continental Army under the assumed name of Robert Shurtlieff and fought for young America’s independence in such major battles as Tarrytown and Yorktown. A Greenhouse Films production.
