9780393312102: The Way of Duty: A Woman and Her Family in Revolutionary America

Combining the skills of a gifted writer and a scholar's grasp of early America, The Way of Duty draws readers into a vividly evoked world.

The Buels have used a rich trove of documents to tell the story of a Connecticut woman, Mary Fish Silliman (1736–1818), whose adventures illuminate the day-to-day realities of living through the American Revolution.

About the Author:

The late Joy Day Buel was an editor and freelance writer.

Richard Buel, Jr., is professor of history at Wesleyan University, Middletown, Connecticut.

Review:

“Engrossing family history, very well told.”
- Kirkus Reviews

“An admirable book about an admirable person. . . . Thoroughly engrossing.”
- Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World

“A poignant, even heart-wrenching story. The Buels make clear just how disruptive the Revolution was in the private lives of families. It is a beautifully written, irresistible story that tells a lot about what the Revolution really meant.”
- Richard L. Bushman, Columbia University

“Vivid, splendid reading―reading for pleasure, for profit, for a sure grasp of the past that made the present possible. ”
- William Manchester
