by Jessica

Gloria's Cause weaves and warps untold stories and people from the American Revolution. Here's a glimpse at a few of the things you can expect to see during next weeks' world premiere:

Deborah Sampson
"The first known American woman to impersonate a man in order to join the army and take part in combat."

Albany Congress
This gathering in 1754 united members of the colonies for the first time to discuss their relationship with the Native Americans. During the conference Benjamin Franklin presented his Albany Plan of Union, a plan which outlined the potential for the colonies uniting to become a single entity (it was rejected).

The intercepted letter
A letter that Colonel Richard Lee was trying to send to Colonel Joseph Reed was accidentally intercepted by  George Washington and revealed deep criticisms of his leadership. More on this soon!
