During and after the Revolutionary War, women had many major roles such as nurses, cooks, maids, soldiers, and even spies.
Female nurses mostly fed and bathed patients, emptied chamber pots, cleaned hospital wards, and sometimes cooking. They often came up with new invention to help treat and care for patients. They did a lot of custodial work.
Some of the roles for women in the Revolutionary War were cooks, laundresses, seamstresses and maids for the arm. This was the first time women held these jobs in the military since these positions were for males solider.
Some of the women wanted to help fight for their freedoms, and so they disguised themselves as men. They changed their looks so they could look more masculine.
Women found different ways to help. Some became spies for the military, and played an important role by delivering news to the leaders.
