I think you ladies are in the number of the best Patriots America can boast. That's what George Washington wrote to the poet Annis Boudinot Stockton in 1788. Stockton is one of the many fascinating women whose stories fill the pages of Founding Mothers. Much has been written about the men who signed the Declaration of Independence, fought the revolutionary war, wrote the Constitution, and formed the new American government. But what of the women?Renowned writer and news correspondent Cokie Roberts turned her reporting skills toward the shelves of history to find dusty books, and the diaries and correspondence of the revolutionary women who made it possible for the men to do what they did. In the same conversational style she brought to her New York Times bestsellers, We Are Our Mothers' Daughters and From This Day Forward, Roberts brings to life the everyday trials and remarkable triumphs of women like Abigail Adams, Eliza Pinckney, and Catherine Littlefield Greene. These are women who will inspire readers of all ages with their strength and sensitivity, making history relevant for us all.
