How did the American Revolution Affect the Children of the American Revolution ?
How did the American Revolution war affect the children you may ask. The American Revolution tore families apart because of extreme disagreement. For instance, your Father is a patriot wanting to fight for his freedom from the king of England, and your Mom is a loyalist who wants to remain under the rule of the king of England. The disagreements were so bitter that Mothers and Fathers would get divorced or just split up the family. The kids were affected because they did not want to choose one parent over the other.
During the American Revolution lots of women helped in America or England. Most of these women had to be an active role while either their fathers or husbands were fighting in this war.
One of these leading ladies that helped out during the war was Abigail Adams. She constantly wrote letters to her husband reminding him to always "remember the ladies" that means to not forget all of the women who are back at home running their house holds with out their fathers or husbands. If it were not for the dedicated ladies nothing would have gotten done on the home front.
