Deborah Sampson - For the Good of the Country

A tall girl, Deborah enlisted in the 4th Mass. Regiment of the Continental Army, as Robert Shertliffe.  Wounded twice during the war - by bullet and saber slash, she was honorably discharged by Henry Knox at West Point.  Good enough for her country, but not good enough for the Baptists, who excommunicated her.

Phyllis Schlafly is even now uncertain if she could cook and thus be worthy of Citizenship.
