Women in the American Revolution, 1763-1783 is an unusual re-telling of the Revolution and the War, campaign by campaign, battle by battle, in both the North and the South. It is unique in that if focuses on the multitude of women who sacrificed in the fight for independence. Without the support of women, American victory simply would not have happened. So this version of the American Revolution remembers the ladies. It shows the backbone role of wives, mothers, sisters and daughters in their rightful place, serving beside soldiers, husbands, brothers and sons-as equals. Whether recording history, or rocking the cradle, or doing men's work of plowing, farming and defending the home; whether working shoulder to shoulder in battle, engaging in the dangerous job of shooting the cannon, or the hazardous field of nursing soldiers with contagious diseases, these revolutionary women inject sugar, spice and grit into every phase of the fight. On these pages, in the middle of events, just when it is least expected, their stubborn patriotism, humor, humanity and tears sparkle through.
