“In 1778, when Deborah Sampson was 18 years old, most girls her age were settling down and getting married. But Deborah had other ideas. She wanted to travel and have adventures-even if it meant dressing like a man! In 1782, The Revolutionary War was still going on. And no one suspected that the man in the uniform was really a woman.” Exerpt from the back of the book.
Review: I really liked this book. It is only 64 pages long, so it would be good for younger girls ages 7-9. It is a informing biography on women in the 16th century. ♥♥♥♥♥
