What were the women's roles in the American Revolution?
Women gained more rights after the Cuban Revolution, increased opportunities in the workplace, and the ability to participate in government. The revolution began in 1953.
It was the Age of Enlightenment, and religion was beginning to lose its grip on the intellectual world. Many of the Founding Fathers were Deists or Naturalists; they believed …in "Nature's God", or Creation itself, rather than a personal God. Some found wisdom in the proponents of different faiths (Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, etc.), and some didn't. Many monarchs (kings and queens) believed in the "Divine Right of Kings"; that God appointed them to their jobs, and wanted them there. The bad choices made by many monarchs called the whole idea into question.
dont take this answer down, women belong in the kitchen making sandwiches
France indeed played a crucial role in the American revolution. France provided arms and adviser's. They sold weapons to the colonies, sent generals to train colonial troops, …and watched out for pirated British ship's. Also France loaned the colonists LOTS and LOTS of money. The only Reason France even helped was because Britain just beet France in a recent war. Britain was already economically hurt from fighting France ,so this was their chance to get them back, and hurt them.
Women played many roles during the Revolution. They were supporters at home while their husbands were away. They also followed camps and made meals, and even fought in the… war at times.
there were no such thing as Americans back in the french revolution
The Navigation Acts were an attempt to put the theory of Mercantilism into practice in the British colonies. The object of mercantilism was to minimize imports that cost the n…ation money, and maximize exports that made the nation money. Colonies were a means of reducing England's dependence on foreign nations. Each colony would provide a raw material to England and this would allow the nation to not have to purchase that product from another nation. By establishing colonies loyal to the Crown, Great Britain would be expanding a dependable market for the finished products coming out of British industries. The Navigation Acts required that all colonial trade be carried in vessels built and owned by English or colonial merchants. The ships had to be manned by crews composed of British seamen. The Acts also required that European nations must sell products to the colonies by first stoping at English ports where they would have to pay a customs duty (tax). The products were checked and then were permitted to travel to the colonies. All products had to go through these ports controlled by England. This made the cost of the product more expensive but protected the trade of Great Britain. Certain materials from the colonies could only be shipped in British or colonial ships and had to be sent to England first. The product was then taxed and allowed to be sent to its destination in whatever European nation. Colonial products could not be shipped directly to any foreign nation.

Canada did not exist as a country at the time of the American revolution. There was both french and English colony's though.
Not a lot, focus in that period was on civil rights for African Americans and independence from Britain for the settlers or 'Americans.' Even in the 20th century women still d…id not have the vote.
When the Declaration of the Rights of Man and Citizen was drawn up by the people of the third state, women were left out. Olympe De Gourges later rewrote it and replaced the w…ord "man" with "woman". Women did participate in the rebellion against the monarchy. For example, the marched to Versailles demanding bread and forcing the royal family to move to Paris..
They fought in the civil war
Kentucky and the American Revolutionary War: (1774-1785) 1776 was a significant date in the growth of the Kentucky Militia in that George Rogers Clark, with others…, represented Fincastle County before the Virginia Assembly. Due to the efforts of these men, 500 pounds of gunpowder were granted for the young Militia to use in defending its settlement against the Indians. It was during this same year that the Virginia Assembly trisected Fincastle County, with one of the sections being designated as Kentucky County. As the result of this division, Kentucky County was accorded its own separate and distinct Militia, which was sorely needed to repel the numerous Indian raids on such places as Logansport, Harrodsburg, and Boonesboro. Officers of this newly created Militia district included such significant historical figures as Daniel Boone, who was commissioned by the Assembly to command Boonesboro. During the Revolutionary War few British troops came into Kentucky. But the young Militia faced a far more formidable, dangerous force than the British in that Indians working as mercenaries were paid by the British for the number of Kentucky scalps collected. One of the more notable operations that the Kentucky militiamen participated in during the War for Independence was the successful raid led by George Rogers Clark against the Indian outposts at Kaskaskia and St. Vincents (Vincennes). In 1774 with the creation of the Provisional Congress in 1774 the Committee of Safety instituted non-loyalist commissions to fill vacancies in the loosely organized home guard. In 1780, the efficiency and organization of the Kentucky State Militia were further achieved when the Virginia Assembly divided Kentucky County into Fayette, Jefferson, and Lincoln counties, each of which had its own Militia. It is interesting to note that Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Boone was at this time commissioned to command the Lincoln County Troops. The supreme test of the early frontier Minutemen occurred in Fayette County when approximately 500 Indians attacked Bryan Station. This raid was repelled chiefly by the Kentucky garrison who stayed under cover and the sharp-shooting militiamen who inflicted fatal fire on any Indian that showed himself. The delay discouraged the attackers, who evidently feared that by prolonging their siege they would subject themselves to the fire of reinforcements that were certain to arrive. Militia from around the area converged on Bryan Station. Finding the attackers had withdrawn, a council was immediately held by the officers, where it was decided to give chase to the Indians. Early on the morning of August 19, 1782, the Militia arrived at the south bank of the Licking River near the Blue Licks salt springs. The Indian army lay hidden in a series of wooden ravines at the crest of a hill. As the Militia assembled on south bank of the river a group of warriors, serving as decoys, appeared in plain view on the hilltop. Another officers' council was called, Daniel Boone urged caution; he pointed out things he had noticed on the march and suggested the possibility of an ambush by the Indians. "They intend to fight," Boone said. Hugh McCary grew angry and defiant. "Them that ain't cowards follow me," he shouted leading a general charge across the river directly into the ambush and hand-to-hand fighting that followed. The result was disaster for the Kentucky Militia and a resounding victory for the Indian/British force. Seventy-two Kentuckians were killed in the fight; more than a third of their force. The Indian and British lost only three men and four more slightly wounded. The Battle of Blue Licks occurred ten months after General Cornwallis had surrendered at Yorktown and would go down in history as the last battle of the American Revolution. In 1783 George Washington prepared the workings for a "Militia of the Continent" which was to be constituted of citizen soldiers responsible to the Federal government in time of national emergency. After the close of the Revolutionary War the Militia was given a brief respite from Indian hostilities. Unlike her Eastern and northeastern sister states, however, Kentucky was still exposed to dangers initiated by the British who had refused to surrender their post in the Northwest. The British used their position to incite the Indians by offering bounties for scalps of Kentucky prisoners. This meant that the Kentucky Militia had to remain organized in constant vigilance against such hostile attacks. Court records of Jefferson County indicate the importance of the Kentucky Militia in the 1790's. Generals' Harmar and St. Clair led militia and federal troops in defense of the Northwest Territory north of the Ohio River. It was in this context that in 1791 that the worse defeat ever visited upon United States military by the Indians took place on the Wabash River in Ohio. Many Kentuckians were among the 1,000 men and two batteries of artillery lost to the Indians. The brother of Kentucky Adjutant General Butler was among those slain. In addition to protecting the populace against Indian attacks, Militia duties included road construction, maintenance of an iron furnace in what is now Bourbon County, and the erection of blockhouses.
