Deborah Sampson (1760-1827) was a soldier in the American Revolution. As women were not allowed to fight at the time, she disguised herself as a man and called herself Robert Shurtlieff. Her gender was kept a secret for nearly two years, and after she was discovered, she received an honorable discharge from the army. Sampson died in 1827 at the age of 66.
