  • During the war, many sons and fathers had volunteered to become a soldier and fight for their independence from Britain. During this time, the women of the family were left to take over their husband's/son's jobs. Some examples of these jobs may be farming or smelting.
  • Some women would also participate during protests against the British. During the Boston Tea Party, women organized a declaration against british goods.
  • Lastly, women such as Margaret Hill Morris would use their knowledge about medicine and medical aid to help injured soldiers during the war. They would dedicate parts of their homes as a place that would be beneficial for the wounded or ill.
