A Revolution of Her Own! Deborah Sampson
Greenville Chautauqua presents A Revolution of Her Own! Deborah Sampson January 17 at 7 p.m. at the Headquarters Library in Spartanburg. As Daniel Morgan trounced Bloody Banastre Tarleton at the Battle of Cowpens, a young self-educated schoolmarm in Massachusetts felt a higher calling. Wearing an old soldier’s uniform, Sampson bound her chest, tied back her hair, and enlisted in the Continental Army, under the alias “Robert Shurtlieff.” Performed by Judith Kaalora from Boston. Free.
