From the book:

While husbands and sons were away fighting, British soldiers and Tories threatened women.  The wives who chose to stay in their homes to try to keep them from being plundered suffered cruelty.  They often slept in their clothes, jumping up at the least noise.

Many cringed in fear when Tories entered their homes with swords drawn to take personal possessions.  Others saw their homes burn as they fled to the forest with their children.   When the British took over large homes for their headquarters, the women had to prepare and serve meals for the enemy. 

Many women nursed wounded soldiers, even turning their homes into hospitals.  A large number carried messages, some as couriers and others as spies.  A small number disguised themselves as men and fought in battle. 

The Revolutionary War changed the way society looked at women.
