Four traditions : women of New York during the American Revolution by Linda Grant De Pauw( Book )
1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 182 libraries worldwide
The role of New York women in the American Revolution is discussed in a survey of four cultural traditions in 17th and 18th century New York--Iroquois, African, Dutch, and English. The purpose is to provide a historical record on the subject of women's history. Women from the four cultural traditions were bound by different conventions which influenced their reactions to the Revolutionary crisis and affected the ways in which that crisis would change their lives. American women were as deeply influenced by the Revolution as were American men, though not always to their benefit. The successful war for independence marked a significant turning point in the status of women. Documented stories are recounted of individual women's activities during the Revolution in each of the chapters titled: Four Traditions; Choosing Sides; Soldiers, Refugees, and Camp Followers; Treason and Espionage; and Aftermath. Some of the stories depict heroic acts, but some show wrongdoings as well. They all indicate the importance and necessity of the roles women played and the tasks they undertook during the Revolution.
