9780275962630: Revolutionary Women in the War for American Independence: A One-Volume Revised Edition of Elizabeth Ellet's 1848 Landmark Series

This modern, annotated adaptation of the original three-volume edition of Women of the American Revolution by Elizabeth Ellet restores, in a single volume, a unique compilation of the roles played by eighty-four American women in the Revolutionary War. A best-seller in the 1850s, Ellet's work is here carefully edited for today's readers by a distinguished Revolutionary War historian. It contains a new introduction and many explanatory footnotes. A new organization arranges these biographies from north to south by colony, underlining the vast differences in class and culture among the various states.

While not America's earliest female historian, Elizabeth Ellet may easily lay claim to being America's first historian of women. Before publication of her books, readers had come close to losing track of the important role played by women in the War for Independence. Ellet preserved these valuable stories through reliance, whenever possible, on first-person accounts which are still as fresh and compelling today as they were in the nineteenth century. A vivid and comprehensive account which will be of interest to both military historians and scholars of women's history.

About the Author:

LINCOLN DIAMANT studied American History at Columbia University and was a writer for CBS News before he became a biographer and historian of the American Revolution. He is author of eight books, including Chaining the Hudson (1994) and The Broadcast Communications Dictionary (Greenwood, 1989). He has lectured extensively on American History and has served as a commentator for Fox Television.

Review:

"Diamant has reorganized, edited, annotated, and augmented Ellet's original volumes resulting in a useful organization by state and region and explanatory notes for the nonspecialist."-Journal of Women's History

"Women's studies students, as well as Revolutionary War enthusiasts, will find Revolutionary Women an enjoyable read."-Smoke and Fire News

?Diamant has reorganized, edited, annotated, and augmented Ellet's original volumes resulting in a useful organization by state and region and explanatory notes for the nonspecialist.?-Journal of Women's History

"A wonderful collection of ladies who through seemingly small acts of quiet heroism helped give birth to a free nation. Their selfless acts are an example to all men and women that honor and freedom are worth the price."-Karen Pena, On-site Administrator Knox's Headquarters State Historic Site

"When it comes to exploring the hidden nooks and forgotten crannies of the American War of Independence, historians Elizabeth Ellet (1848) and -- a century and a half later -- Lincoln Diamant make a dream team. Mr. Diamant artfully combines Mrs. Ellet's biographies of more than eighty unusual colonial women -- from Abigail Adams to the anonymous 'John's Wife' -- excising repetition and duplication spread across the original three volume set. In this new one-volume edition, Mrs. Ellet's revolutionary women merit their return to everyone's American Revolutionary bookshelf."-Julie Perin Bird Past President-General, Colonial Dames of America
