Freedom From English Law: That is What We All Need
We Deserve Respect
Wives are important though, they do so many things around the house other than cooking, cleaning, and watching over the children. They also butchered birds they raise, smoke meat, make cheese , sow clothes from the cloth they had spun, make soap, and preserve vegetables they had grown. Most of these chores are stereotyped as feminine. As the Revolutionary war wages on skills like sewing are more appreciated by men as a necessity .
During the American Revolutionary war some men either don't go to war because they like the English law, most of who are very rich. The poorer men go to war because of a promise of land, money, and freedom that is involved. Women that sign up to be in the war mostly had the same intentions of the poor men. They wanted diversity from England. Most women found a way to help in their closely knitted society made by men to help and not join the war. Just remember one thing, "...remember the ladies." - Abigail Adams
