In this groundbreaking history, Carol Berkin shows us how women played a vital role throughout the conflict. The women of the Revolution were most active at home, organizing boycotts of British goods, raising funds for the fledgling nation, and managing the family business while struggling to maintain a modicum of normalcy as husbands, brothers and fathers died.

This incisive and comprehensive history illuminates a fascinating and unknown side of the struggle for American independence.

Image and summary taken from goodreads. After two months of not reading for my challenge, I was finally back on track — and what a better read than to gain some new heroines of the American Revolution during July?!

Perfect pairing, right? When I set out for our library oh, the adventures of this new library system — the stories I can tell already! However, only about a third of the book actually deals with women who supported the American Revolution and that research is shallow at best.

The women who are discussed are done so briefly, with their contributions, personal history, and impact rarely taking more than three paragraphs. The second two-thirds of the book deal with loyalist women, wives of Hessian generals, Native American women, and African-American women who happened to be in America at the time of the Revolution. Overall, this book was very poorly put together. I had a writing professor offer me a wonderful piece of advice my sophomore year.

He knew I had my major picked out and my courses laid out to graduation, so he counseled me to choose every paper topic I could to support what would eventually be my senior thesis. His point was that when I reached that point, my thesis would essentially write itself, as I would have already done the research and refined my argument. And did you research those? Because instead of checking out every single book that may have ever mentioned a woman who lived during this time, I checked out yours.

I want those stories. This was a frustrating read. I found it shallow, unfocused, without coherent argument, and disappointing. Posted by Marsh Mayhem.

`` Revolutionary Mothers `` By Carol Berkin

Moving far beyond the stories of familiar patriot women, Berkin finds a series of lenses through which to examine the time period. She chooses to show the war through the eyes of patriot and loyalist, rich and poor, American and British, Indian and African American women. In doing so, she allows the reader to see the war not as black and white, good versus evil, but rather as a gray-toned struggle, which affected a kaleidoscope of women and their families. It is clear that Berkin admires the women about whom she writes, for qualities such as physical strength, courage, mental toughness, intelligence, and resourcefulness.
