Brief biographies of 600 women who performed patriotic acts--some rode on horseback to warn the Americans of British attack; a few carried muskets; many were captured by Indians; many had husbands or sons who were killed or taken as prisoners. These women spun flax, made shirts, knitted socks, cooked food, or nursed the soldiers, and some spied for the Americans. Also included is a listing of 4,500 additional women who suffered damage from the British or provided provisions for the troops. With an official state reference and page number for each entry.
