A description of a variety of women who helped the American cause during the Revolution.
Includes Abigail Adams, who called for greater rights, Molly Pitcher, who fired a cannon, Deborah Sampson, who disguised herself as a man and joined the Continental Army, and Mrs. Day, who used her broom to make "the powder fly" from the wig of one British official.
My students loved to do a skit based on this handout. (You had to be sure to include a broom for Mrs. Day.)
