This booklet tells the story of American women during the Revolutionary War and, in part, dispels the myth of the colonial woman waiting for her soldier off at war. Women during the revolution were stuck doing maintaining their rural homes or farms by themselves, often while raising children—a daunting task in 1776 or today—and they still found ways to aid the patriot militias!
Using first hand sources, such as journals, diaries, newspapers articles of the time, and more, Women In The American Revolution packs a lot of information into a small booklet. There are stories of spies, nurses, smugglers; all contained within this booklet's 87 pages.
Women In The American Revolution makes an inspiring and interesting read for Americans of all ages, pick it up today!
