Review of Revolutionary Mothers by Carol Berkin

Revolutionary Mothers: Women in the Struggle for America's Independence - Carol Berkin

A fantastic short book focusing on women during the American Revolutionary period of history.  Carol Berkin is one of the top authors of the period, and I really enjoyed this look into the many roles women played from many different backgrounds (economically and ethnically).  There were no real deep biographies of any specific women of the period, but the stories of many women were returned to and flushed out.  This is an important book for students of the time period to read.
