Founding Mothers by Cokie Roberts
 

Founding Mothers: The Women Who Raised Our Nation

By Cokie Roberts

An intimate and illuminating look at the fervently patriotic and passionate women whose tireless pursuits proved just as crucial to the forging of a new nation as the rebellion that established it. While much has been written about the men who signed the Declaration of Independence, battled the British, and framed the Constitution, the wives, mothers, sisters and daughters they left behind have been little noticed by history. Roberts brings us women who fought the Revolution as valiantly as the men, often defending their very doorsteps.
