Overview

The heroes and heroines of the American Revolution were monumental figures that changed not only America but the world. Some of them were brave on the battlefield (Washington, Daniel Morgan, Francis Marion, Molly Pitcher, Margaret Corbin). Some were brilliant political thinkers, who gave the world a new form of governance (Jefferson, Hamilton, Madison). Some were great patriot writers and orators for the cause (Henry, Warren, Paine). Some of them came from overseas to help the American cause (von Steuben, Lafayette). Some were great diplomats (Franklin, John Adams). Some were spies who risked their lives for the cause (Lydia Darragh), and some of them forfeited their lives (Nathan Hale). And some were revolutionaries who risked their fortunes and good names for the Revolution (John Hancock, Samuel Adams).
