It was the time of the Revolutionary War and Deborah Sampson wanted to join the army! 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 joining the army and 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.

Fascinating book. Very readable.
