The Revolution after Yorktown After Yorktown: The Final Struggle for American Independence (Westholme Publishing) is the story of the men who kept fighting. The popular myth is that heroic, patriotic Americans under George Washington defeated the British at Yorktown, the Revolution was over, and Americans were exceptional.

Popular understandings of the American Revolution tend to overlook the contributions of women. In fact, Carol Berkin observes that just three women: Abigail Adams, “Molly Pitcher,” and Betsy Ross, are readily associated with the War.
