In 1782, Deborah Sampson ran away from her home in Middleborough, Massachusetts, disguised herself as a man, and joined the army to fight in the American Revolutionary War. In 1995, Alex Myers, a descendant of Deborah Sampson, came out as transgender and transitioned to live as a man—he was the first openly transgender student to attend Harvard University. Myers will be discussing his novel Revolutionary. Myers uses historical fiction to explore Deborah's exploits as a soldier and to ask critical questions about gender, identity, and self—both in the 18th century and today.
