  • Winner of the Liz Carpenter Award for Research in the History of Women, Texas State Historical Association Historically, wars and revolutions have offered politically and socially disadvantaged people the opportunity to contribute to the nation or cause in exchange for future expanded rights Although shorter than most conflicts, the Texas Revolution nonetheless profoundWinner of the Liz Carpenter Award for Research in the History of Women, Texas State Historical Association Historically, wars and revolutions have offered politically and socially disadvantaged people the opportunity to contribute to the nation or cause in exchange for future expanded rights Although shorter than most conflicts, the Texas Revolution nonetheless profoundly affected not only the leaders and armies, but the survivors, especially women, who endured those tumultuous events and whose lives were altered by the accompanying political, social, and economic changes.While there is wide scholarship on the Texas Revolution, there is no comparable volume on the role of women during that conflict Most of the many works on the Texas Revolution include women briefly in the narrative, such as Emily Austin, Susanna Dickinson, and Emily Morgan West the Yellow Rose , but not as principal participants Women and the Texas Revolution explores these women in much depth, in addition to covering the women and children who fled Santa Anna s troops in the Runaway Scrape, and examining the roles and issues facing Native American, black, and Hispanic women of the time.Like the American Revolution, women s experiences in the Texas Revolution varied tremendously by class, religion, race, and region While the majority of immigrants who crossed the Sabine and Red rivers into Texas in the 1820s and 1830s were men, many were women who accompanied their husbands and families or, in some instances, braved the dangers and the hardships of the frontier alone Black and Hispanic women were also present in Mexican Texas Most black women came as chattel property or free blacks and most Tejanas were already living in predominantly Spanish or Mexican communities The Native American female population, a sizeable but declining segment of the population, was also in the region, inhabiting the prairies and plains, but rarely counted in the various censuses at the time Whether Mexican loyalist or Texas patriot, elite planter or subsistence farm wife, slaveholder or slave, Anglo or black, women helped settle the Texas frontier and experienced the uncertainty, hardships, successes, and sorrows of the Texas Revolution.By placing women at the center of the Texas Revolution, this volume reframes the historical narrative and asks different questions What were the social relations between the sexes at the time of the Texas Revolution Did women participate in the war effort Did the events of 1836 affect Anglo, black, Hispanic, and Native American women differently What changes occurred in women s lives as a result of the revolution Did the revolution liberate women to any degree from their traditional domestic sphere and threaten the established patriarchy In brief, was the Texas Revolution revolutionary for women

    1. Since it's a compilation of various authors, some chapters are better than others. A few I found really poor--an interesting title, read the entire chapter, to have it all summed up with "We really don't know a lot about this subject." Something to that effect. Anyway, it had a lot of great references for future research and reading. If you are a Native Texan or want to brush up on your Texas History, it's a good read. It's worth buying. I checked it out from the library.

    2. A scholarly look at women during the Texas Revolution. Different essays look at the effects on native, tejana and African American women in addition to the more normal view of Anglo women.There was some interesting new anecdotes
