On Saturday, October 1, at 5:00 p.m. at The Alley Theatre in Middleboro, hear the story of Deborah Sampson in "A Revolution of Her Own."

According to South Coast Today.com, "Deborah Sampson Gannett (December 17, 1760 – April 29, 1827), [or] better known as Deborah Sampson or Deborah Samson, was a local woman who disguised herself as a man in order to serve in the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War."

Born on December 17, 1760 in Plympton. Sampson was raised by a family that had very little. Sampson's mother was the great-granddaughter of William Bradford, Governor of Plymouth Colony, and when her father abandoned the family, Sampson's mother was unable to provide for her children.

Sampson was placed in households with friends and relatives. Eventually, she was sent to live with Jeremiah Thomas in Middleboro.

On Saturday, October 1, at 5:00p.m., Judith Kalaora is bringing Sampson back to tell her incredible story at the Alley Theatre in Middleboro.
