PATRIOTS IN PETTICOATS : HEROINES
OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION
New York : Random, 2004.
IL 3-6, RL 5.0
you ever heard of Prudence Cummings Wright? Probably not but she
was an important player in the American Revolution. Prudence lived
in Pepperill, Mass. When her husband was called to Concord with the other
minutemen, Prudence organized a small group of women who dressed in their
husband's clothes, grabbed rifles and defended Pepperill quite successfully.
Fascinating. Read about Prudence and many other women who did their
part in the fight for independence in Patriots in Petticoats.
