Editorial Reviews

Cokie Roberts, author of Founding Mothers, sheds light on female contributions to the American Revolution, revealing stirring stories about those who helped raise our nation. As Abigail Adams told husband John: ''All history and every age exhibit instances of patriotic virtue in the female sex; which considering our situation equals the most heroic of yours.'' With the men away, women defended homes, raised children, managed businesses, and provided political advice. But not all were patriotic--like Margaret (Peggy) Shippen Arnold, Benedict's wife. Promised freedom, many slaves fought for the British, though in 1781, a slave called Mumbett sued for freedom and won! This founding mother, who took the name Elizabeth Freeman, set a precedent that led to Massachusetts' abolition of slavery. And we examine the role of camp followers and the few women that actually fought, like Deborah Sampson who enlisted in the Continental Army under her dead brother's name.
