Summary
Sarah Emma Edmonds was a young Canadian woman who adopted the guise of a man to escape an arranged marriage at seventeen. For two years, living as Franklin Thompson, she enjoyed the freedoms that men enjoyed, traveling the country at will as a successful book salesman. In 1861, President Lincoln asked for 75,000 volunteers to suppress the "rebellion" Most of Franklin Thompson's friends would answer the call. For Thompson, the question was more complicated -- but she didn't hesitate before enlisting in the Second Michigan Infantry at nineteen years old
