Overview

A devoted band of patriotic women who shared the outlawry their husbands had brought upon themselves by declaring their independence of British rule—Many of them suffered bitter persecution from British and Tories—Mary Bartlett forced to fly with her family from her burning home—Elizabeth Adams compelled to resort to needle-work to support her family-Elizabeth Lewis, imprisoned for months, suffered privations and hardships that led to her death—Mary Morris (N. Y.) driven from a beautiful home, wantonly devastated—Annis Stockton, a homeless refugee after the British looted and burned her home—Deborah Hart, driven from her home, saw her husband hunted for months as a criminal and came to her own death from exposure and anxiety.
