Deborah Sampson

Deborah Sampson is another key figure in history showing how history is CAPABLE OF CENSURING important pieces of history.  In this case, censuring women and their acts when they helped aid men during the American Revolutionary War.  IT'S WIDELY BELIEVED THROUGHOUT THE U.S. THAT MEN WERE THE ONLY ONES ACTIVE DURING THE WAR WHICH ISN'T TRUE.  Deborah Sampson dressed and acted as a man during the war for three years.  She was shot twice and eventually other men in her unit found out that she was a woman.  When she died later after the war, her pension from the government and her medal of honor was given to her husband (how sad...).  This shows how in history men aren't willing to ACKNOWLEDGE WOMEN AND THEIR ROLES PORTRAYING MEN'S ROLES.
