While the experiences of women differed depending on their circumstances and loyalties, the Revolutionary War affected all of them. In this free virtual workshop, educators will use primary sources and Museum education tools to explore women's roles and experiences in the Revolutionary War, especially those that joined armies as camp followers. Participants will be oriented to historical objects, documents, and classroom teaching tools suitable for introducing students to the various ways that women helped the war effort by maintaining their homes and communities, following the army, and even fighting in battle.
