Tag, Rag, and Bobtail: Women Belonging to the Army

Loading the player...

As the war for American Independence rages, two women are risking everything in order to follow those fighting for the causes they believe in. These women attach themselves to the army out of a sense of duty and obligation. In doing so, they sacrifice peace of mind, safety, and their own hopes and dreams. Their often-forgotten efforts shaped the war and they showed their patriotism though both daily actions as well as through extraordinary actions under unusual circumstances. Much of today's performance has been drawn from first-hand accounts of the time including diaries, pension records, newspapers and letters.
