Did you know women fought in the American Revolution?

Everyone has heard of Betsy Ross and Abigail Adams, but have you heard of Elizabeth Burgin and Deborah Sampson? Elizabeth helped over 200 Patriot prisoners escape from the British, and Deborah disguised herself as a man and enlisted in the 4th Massachusetts Regiment. And there were many more who fought bravely for our country. This book tells the stories of just a few of these.
