Glory, Passion, and Principle: The Story of Eight Remarkable Women at the Core of the American Revolution
Melissa Lukeman Bohrer (au)
Much has been written of the brave deeds, acts of heroism, & intellectual prowess of the men who drafted the Decl. of Indep., yet almost no attention has been paid to the extraordinary women of that time. This book tells the story of 8 women, each deprived of formal educ., world travel, or equal status, & yet all managed to flourish against incredible odds -- advising such men as John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, or Benjamin Franklin on political theory; publishing poems & plays that would rouse a nation to independent furor; helping negotiate treaties; acting as spies; or fighting alongside men in the mil. The women are Abigail Adams, Nancy Ward, Sybil Ludington, Deborah Sampson, Lydia Darragh, Mercy Otis Warren, Phillis Wheatley, & Molly Pitcher. Illus.
