Don’t Forget the Ladies

And you can rest assured that we have not! Those famous words were uttered in 1787 by Abigail Adams to her husband, John Adams, as he and others set off to create the American Constitution. This section of the Online Library is dedicated to the vital role women played in the American Revolution and the formation of the United States of America.
