In the Words of Women: The Revolutionary War and the Birth of the Nation, 1765-1799 In the Words of Women brings together the writings — letters, diaries, journals, pamphlets, poems, plays, depositions, and newspaper articles — of women who lived between 1765-1799. The writings are organized chronologically around events, battles, and developments from before the Revolution, through its prosecution and aftermath. They reflect the thoughts, observations, and experiences of women during those tumultuous times, women less well-known to the reading public, including patriots and loyalists; the highborn and lowly; Native Americans and blacks, both free and enslaved; the involved and observers; the young and old; and those in between. Brief narrative passages provide historical context, and information about the women as they are introduced enables readers to appreciate their relevance and significance.
