Summary
They were passionate and fearless, outspoken and adventurous. They negotiated peace treaties, fought in wars, managed businesses and plantations, and spoke out against injustice. They were entrepreneurs, artists, and leaders. These Outrageous Women of Colonial America, with their daring exploits and brave deeds, won a place in history and helped to forge a new country. Among the outrageous women you'll meet are: Deborah Samson -- the fearless Massachusetts servant girl who disguised herself as a man and ran away to become the first female soldler in America to fight in battle. Anne Bailey -- the fiery 32-year-old widow who donned her husband's buckskin jacket and took his place scouting in the wilderness. Elizabeth "Mumbet" Freeman -- a slave who won her freedom in a landmark court case in the 1780s, ditched the slave name her master had given her, and inspired others to follow in her footsteps. Peggy Arnold -- the bold wife of Benedict Arnold who conspired with her notorious husband and became the highest paid spy of the American Revolution
