Description

This fascinating book brings to light the profound changes that took place during the American Revolution. It was often hard to distinguish homefront from battle front as most of the 13 colonies experienced battle during the American Revolution. Neighbors were sometimes on different sides of the war, some still being loyal to England. The economy suffered as inflation ran out of control. Readers will discover that it was also a time of great social change and more freedom, particularly for women and for some African American slaves. Women assumed a lot of the household affairs and had more decision-making power as men went off to war. Slaves sought their freedom by joining the British.
