"Much has been written about the men who fought for freedom during the American Revolution; however, the women behind the scenes also deserve recognition for their selfless struggle and the hardships they endured. The biographical sketches in this book give accounts of women who contributed by keeping the family farm and/or business going while the men were fighting, helping neighbors gather crops, furnishing clothing and other comfort to soldiers, and more. These sketches are brief (most are two or three pages) but provide a wealth of genealogical information for the subject and her husband which include his military contributions."~back cover
