11 Aug Revolutionary Visit
Alex Myer, Author of “Revolutionary” Visits
The annual Welcoming Congregation worship service held on May 11th was highlighted by Alex Myers, author of the book ‘Revolutionary,” who spoke on the topic of local legend Deborah Sampson. Sampson disguised herself as a man to join the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. In addition to the historical angle, Alex also brought a transgender perspective to this very special annual event.
