Remember the Ladies: Women During the American Revolution

Remember the Ladies: Women During the American Revolution

Historian Joel Farkas presents a comprehensive look at the lives of women in the American Revolution. From the expectations of women to their legal rights, their role in health and medicine, to an in-depth look at the “First Ladies” of the time period like Martha Washington and Abigail Adams, this is a must-see exploration into the lives of the women who played a crucial role in the founding of our country.

Joel Farkas is a graduate of The Ohio State University and a former officer in the United States Army, and is currently a National Park Service volunteer docent at Washington’s Headquarters (The Ford Mansion) in Morristown, NJ. His unique background and knowledge in American History has allowed him to lecture at libraries, clubs, schools, organizations and institutions all over New Jersey. Mr. Farkas strives to motivate people to learn more about the founding of our country,  about the extraordinary people and what they did. When it comes to history, Joel wants to prove, as William Faulkner wrote, that, “The past is never dead. In fact, it’s not even past.”
