The 2019 SAR Annual Conference on the American Revolution
Women Waging War in the American Revolution

June 14-16, 2019

Mary Silliman wrote in 1776 that she had “acted the heroine as well as my dear Husband [General Gold Selleck Silliman, Connecticut militia] the hero.” Not all women (or men) acted heroically in the war, but they did act, not just react, and their agency informs this conference. How did women fight the Revolution – fight for it, fight against it, and fight in it? This conference intends to examine women warriors, followers, and activists from many perspectives – American and British, Patriot and Loyalist, free and enslaved. This conference will examine the words, actions, and influence of women in the War for American Independence.

Women Waging War in the American Revolution will be chaired by Holly A. Mayer, Associate Professor of History at Duquesne University and the 2019 SAR Distinguished Scholar
