A Woman’s Place in Early America

Out of stock
This overview shows the many ways in which women contributed to colonial America with their bravery, compassion, and intelligence. Though women did not have the same political or legal rights as men, they played an important role in the early development of the United States. Well-known figures such as Molly Pitcher make an appearance, and also lesser-known heroines, including Mary Murray, who, during the Revolutionary War, distracted British officers from the nearby Continental army by inviting them over for lunch. Intermittent “Fast Facts,” period artwork, and reproductions bring visual interest to the clean layout. Back matter includes chapter notes; a time line; a glossary; further reading for younger and older readers; Internet resources; and an index.
