Our Revolutionary Mothers’ Voices
National Conference for History Education (NCHE) 2022 Annual Conference
March 17, 2022, 5:45 p.m. (EST)
In 1848’s The Women of the American Revolution, author Elizabeth Ellet wrote: “Except for the Letters of Mrs. Adams, no fair exponent of the feelings and trials of the women of the Revolution [has] been given … showing the important part she bore … to which we are not less indebted for national freedom, than to the swords of our patriots who poured out their blood,” yet the story of our “Revolutionary Mothers” includes many—often conflicting—struggles for freedom and independence. Join the American Revolution Institute’s session at the 2022 National Council for History Education online annual conference on Thursday, March 17 at 5:45 p.m. (EST) for a presentation exploring how the Revolutionary generation’s female community supported or resisted the War economically, politically, and militarily. During our session we will outline the Institute’s online resources including a lesson plan developed by one of our master teachers, Kim Greer, who teaches at Nevada Middle School, Nevada MO. To participate, visit the NCHE conference webpage.
