Revolutionary Mothers: Women in the Struggle for America's Independence. By Carol Berkin. ISBN 978-1-4000-7532-4. Copyright 2005. Softcover with 194 pages including notes and index.

The American Revolution was a home-front war that brought scarcity, bloodshed, and danger into the life of every American. This incisive and comprehensive history illuminates women's contributions to the struggle for American independence. Women played a vital role throughout the conflict by 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. One woman, Margaret Corbin, was crippled for life when she took her husband's place beside a cannon at Fort Monmouth.
