Nassakeag Elementary School fourth grade classes recently traveled back in time as they participated in a virtual assembly called “The Revolutionary Deborah Sampson,” which was presented in conjunction with the Living History Program.

Deborah Sampson, best known as the “Secret Soldier,” was the American Revolution’s only acknowledged female combat veteran. A descendant of William Bradford and Miles Standish, Sampson spent her childhood in poverty, living in indentured servitude, and served with high honors in the light infantry of the Continental Army from 1782-1783. During the event, the presenters brought her story to life through interactive reenactments and storytelling. The program enhanced the classes’ lesson on colonial history and the American Revolution, as the conversations punctuated the plight of the colonies and the need for revolution through the eyes of this extraordinary individual.
