Women in the American Revolution played various roles depending on their social status (in which race was a factor) and their political views.

Americans responded by forming the Continental Congress and going to war with the British.

United States history. Written By: Willard M. Wallace. The American Revolution was principally caused by colonial opposition to British attempts to impose greater control over the colonies and to make them repay the crown for its defense of them during the French and Indian War (1754–63). How was the American Revolution a civil war? In the early stages of the rebellion by the American colonists, most of them still saw themselves as English subjects who were being denied their rights as such. Taxation without representation is tyranny, James Otis reportedly said in protest of the lack of colonial representation in Parliament.

This is my second book to read in the Lucent History Makers series and I only remain more and more impressed by the quality of their publications. This book features brief but very well written and informative biographies of Abigail Adams, Peggy Arnold, Esther DeBerdt Reed, Deborah Sampson, Mercy Otis Warren, and Phillis Wheatley. While at first my ultra Patriot sympathies were shocked at the inclusion of Peggy Shippen Arnold, who is the wife of the notorious traitor, Benedict Arnold, the book was informative in that it says it wasn't until the 1930s that historians were able to effectively conclude that she was in on the spying with her husband. I never knew just why Abigail Adams is always mentioned in history as it seems she didn't really do anything, but this book explains that her letters, while not originally intended for publication, were later published and included a lot of egalitarian ideas where women are concerned. I especially found the story of Esther DeBerdt Reed interesting, as I was not familiar with her until now, but she formed the first soldier's aid society and it was during a time when it was considered unseemly for women to do so. Mercy Otis Warren is another notable Patriot with whom I was unfamiliar until now, but the book explains in detail how her Patriotic plays were inspirational and the impact of her history of the American Revolution being the first book published under a woman's own name on this side of the Atlantic. The story of Phillis Wheatley is very well told here and the importance of her being such an accomplished former slave of the time period is noted very well. And of course, what book about the American Revolution is complete without the fighting Deborah Sampson? And this book does an excellent job of relating her story. Read it to find out just why the U.S. Congress granted her husband a widower's pension and stated that "He, indeed, was honored much by being the husband of such a wife."
