The founding fathers are my heroes and there is no denying the sacrifice they made to form our country. However, women who helped spark the Revolutionary War are often overlooked. Here’s a round up of five women who did incredible things during the Revolutionary War that we owe it to ourselves to remember.
Abigail Adams was much more than the wife of John Adams and the mother of John Quincey Adams. She was one of John Adam’s closest advisors while he served in the First Continental Congress and as he eventually became Vice President and then President of the United States. Adams encouraged independence as well as women’s rights. She counseled her husband to “remember the ladies” during the Second Continental Congress. While her husband was serving as a diplomat in Europe, it was Abigail who kept him apprised of what was happening in the country they helped create. She helped shape America with her thoughts on liberty and freedom for all.
