She is the sister that actually inspired this letter. When I was listening to the last song again it talked about all the things cool things she accomplished. While the song was playing I started to think about how we don't learn a lot about her in school or actually I don't think we learn about her at all. So decided to take matters into my own hands and teach you about them. Ok so back to Eliza… Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton was born on August 9, 1757. Both of her parents come from rich and politically involved Dutch families. Eliza re-organized Hamilton's writings, letters and papers to tell his story; she asked congress to publish his writings after she organized them.

She also speaks against slavery and creates the first private orphanage in New York.I mean this woman is truly amazing she did so much more, I will talk more about her I just think she is so cool so I will bring her back into this story.
During the 1760’s, Martha Dandridge Custis Washington settled down and her life revolved around her home and her family. As tensions with Britain rose, she became a target and Washington convinced her to leave Mount Vernon. She would spend time with family and friends while moving from location to location. Martha would stay with George during the winter throughout the years of the war at places like Valley Forge and Morristown, New Jersey.

She also created a camp social center by inviting guests to the camp. Martha also organized a women’s sewing circle that would often mend clothing. All of these things were part of the success of the war. After the war, her son’s widow remarried and two of Martha’s grandchildren
It might seem somewhat strange to start a history of Suffolk poisonings with an account of the events surrounding a woman who’s address was actaully in Norfolk. The excuse is that her home lay very close to the county boundary and that both her intended and actual victims were living in Suffolk. And, it has to be said that although the details are meagre, the case of Elizabeth Woolterton or Wooltorton as it was spelled in her day makes a refreshing change from most of the other cases that follow in so far as Elizabeth came from yeoman rather than pheasant stock.

I’ve spent weeks upon weeks learning about the Revolutionary War, but I was not expecting to learn as many interesting facts as I did. For example, I knew about the legend of Betsy Ross sewing the first American flag I just didn’t realize how many women historical figures there were. The young lady that stood out to me the most was 16 year old Sybil Ludington. On April 26th, 1777 she rode 40 miles to alert her father’s militia company that Danbury, Connecticut was under attack and to have everyone meet at the Ludington house. Knowing that women and men weren’t treated equally back then, I think that was a very heroic thing for Sybil to do. She most likely saved many lives that could have been lost. Imagine how grateful the people in Danbury were for her heroic actions. I also found some of the methods the soldiers used incredibly interesting. One of these clever methods was used with lanterns. One or two lanterns were placed in the spire of Boston’s Old North Church to alert

They all wanted the freedom from Britain, and unified for a victory. After, they felt freer and more equal and that

When her mother died, Eliza was left to care for her siblings and the three plantations that her family owned. She grew several new crops and even indigo which was used as a dye and exported to other places. Eliza and her husband Charles Pinckney had three children together.

Eliza's sons did well in their position in the war and even signed the Declaration of Independence. Eliza states, " no pleasure can
