Excerpt from Some Pennsylvania Women During the War of the Revolution

Little is known of many of the heroes of the Days of seventy-six, and much less of the noble women of that most interesting period of our Nation's history The object of the writer of these brief sketches is not only to present some facts concerning those to whom as Children of Revolutionary Sires we owe so much; but to bring, in sharp contrast, the patriotism, sufferings, and self-denials, of that band of American dames, with the frivolity and disloyalty of those women of the metrop olis, which made the occupation of Philadelphia by the British in the Winter of 1777 - 78 a round of gayety. It is a well-known fact, lost sight of by many readers of historic fiction, that the saviors of our country at Valley Forge, in their raggedness and misery, would have starved, had it not been for that devoted band of true hearted loving women whose homes were on or lying near the frontiers of our grand old Commonwealth. Without embellishment or fulsome laudation, facts are simply given - and these solely to teach that patriotism is one thing, while loyalty without philanthropy is another, These brief sketches of the Matrons of the Declaration are inscribed to The Daughters who will find harvest fields in Pennsylvania revolutionary history which will yield them richer, nay, worthier gleanings than the too oft threshed straw of New England fiction.these are Deeds that shall not pass away, And Names that must not wither.
