History Book Club: “Founding Mothers” by Cokie Roberts
March 16, 2022/
Following last month’s book, Founding Brothers, it’s all about the ladies in Cokie Roberts’s book, Founding Mothers. We’ll be reading the first half of the book for the April meeting, and the second half for May.
A few topics to consider:
- What were the most obvious roles women played during the Revolutionary Era?
- Who was in more danger, women or men?
- Does learning about the women’s perspectives change your viewpoint on any of the men you’ve learned about in history books?
- How did the family relationships and friendships from around the colonies affect the Cause?
