Women during the revolution took up the jobs of their male counterparts. An example of this is smithing and the men did not have a lot of time to do the preparation for the war so the women took up the big part of that. The women who did this would manufacture metal swords, parts for weapons and made things like bayonets. Gunpowder was a main part and was refined by women mostly most men were already fighting in the war.
Many women during the revolution took great tasks on in helping soldiers who were hurt but something that was extraordinary was that the women who were helping soldiers helped patriots and redcoats. Women played a big role in helping soldiers who were wounded and would take care of them and nurse them to health. Many women not only nursed soldiers to health they would get money and supplies to take to soldiers in the cold or who were starving and I consider that nursing because women really are a big part of why more didn't die.
Many women during the war helped as spies to aid the soldiers in getting information. One day a patriot asked a woman known as Elizabeth Burgin who infiltrated the prison and as a women was unnoticed and gave prisoners information on an escape plan. Many women did things like this during the war making it a notable accomplishment that had been done by many women in which it helped soldiers with information since women were not suspected of being spies at the time because of their appearance.
