    I was searching for a few good books about women during the Revolutionary War and came across an outstanding book list for those interested in the subject:

    1. "From Gloucester to Philadelphia in 1790" by Judith Sargent Murray

    2. "A Midwife's Tale: The Life of Martha Ballard, Based on Her Diary" by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich

    3. "Liberty's Daughters: The Revolutionary Experience of American Women" by Mary Beth Norton

    4. "The Bonds of Womanhood: ' Woman's Sphere' in New England 1780-1835" by Nancy F. Cott

    5. "Women of the Republic: Intellect and Ideology in Revolutionary America"

    6. "Selected Writings of Judith Sargent Murray"

    7. "Abigail Adams-A Biography" by Phyllis Lee Levin

    8. "Dearest Friend: The Life of Abigail Adams" by Lynne Whithey

    I have read several of these books over the years and had forgotten about some of them. If you are interested in the lives of women during and after the Revolutionary War, these are very good books on the subject. Hope you enjoy!
