General Casimir Pulaski
(Kazimierz Pułaski, born in Warsaw on March 4 or March 6, 1745; died on October 11, 1779 during the siege of Savannah), one of the great heros of the American Revolution, has been found to be female by the researches of the Georgia Southern University.
As such, a chapter in American history is forever changed. The story behind this historic mystery is revealed in Smithsonian Channel's documentary, "America's Hidden Stories: The General Was Female?
"It's not often that you get to rewrite the history books. We are pleased to have Smithsonian Channel walk the final mile with this talented team of anthropologists who have finally uncovered the truth about one of America's great war heroes" - says Smithsonian Channel Executive Producer Tim Evans.
