Milcah Martha Moore (1740-1829) lived and flourished in the Philadelphia area during its peak, when it was the center of commerce, politics, social life, and culture in the young republic. A well-educated woman, disowned by her Quaker Meeting for an unauthorized marriage, Moore knew and corresponded with many of the leading lights of her day. From her network of acquaintances, she created a commonplace book, which is published here for the first time. Moore compiled her commonplace book during the American Revolution, carefully selecting works of poetry and prose that she and her friends most enjoyed reading and wanted to remember. Contained are 126 works of prose and poetry by at least sixteen different authors, mostly women. Catherine Blecki and Karin Wulf have edited and reproduced the entire collection, adding helpful annotations and interpretive essays that set the collection in historical and literary context. Moore's Book will be a treasure trove for feminist and early American scholars, for it includes two of the most avidly sought-after bodies of writing from British America: sixteen new poems (twenty-four in all) by the Quaker polymath Susanna Wright and a previously lost portion of the journal kept by Elizabeth Graeme Fergusson during her trip to England. There is also a remarkable selection of pieces by Hannah Griffitts, the Quaker moralist and wit who commented on politics, society, and domesticity during the Revolution. Moore also included writings by Benjamin Franklin, Patrick Henry, and Samuel Fothergill. While scholars have speculated about the extent to which elite women exchanged ideas through reading and writing during this period, Moore's Book is the richest surviving body of evidence revealing the nature and substance of women's intellectual community in British America. The quality of the writing is high and reflects a range of popular literary genres including religious and meditational poetry, elegies, verse epistles and extempore verse, hymns, occasional poems, letters, and journal writing. Topics range from family and friends to religion and mortality, to politics and war--belying the notion that women's concerns were limited only to a domestic sphere. Taken as a whole, Moore's collection presents an unparalleled view of the interests and tastes of educated women in early America.

Imaginary journeys... we've all had them. BJ's passion...riding Dobbin, her rocking horse. During those times, she imagines Dobbin trotting off with her into those places where history is being made. She is young enough to ride a rocking horse, but smart enough to put herself in those moments. We can only imagine how she became so smart. We could think of her as being home schooled or tutored by history buffs. Whatever the circumstance, she feels it's important to experience being there during those times. In each chapter Dobbin gallops off with BJ in an imaginary journey into history. The chapters are about people and places that make America what it is today. Each chapter ends the same; with BJ's mother tapping her shoulder to tell her to get off her rocking horse and go to bed. It is at that moment she realizes it was just an imaginary journey. Have you ever imagined going back in time? How did they dress? What foods did they eat? What was their family life like? Who were their friends? To find answers, you will have to turn the page and journey along with BJ and Dobbin to explore these important times and places in history. Betty Riordan is a resident of Lee's Summit, Missouri, a suburb of Kansas City. She is a mother of three daughters, and a grandmother. Her passions are her family, planning Nana camp for her grandchildren each summer, reading, writing, entertaining, flower gardening, bird watching and traveling. She spent many years planning programs and events for senior adults. This is her first book, but she is planning to make it a series.

The apprentice system in colonial America began as a way for young men to learn valuable trade skills from experienced artisans and mechanics and soon flourished into a fascinating and essential social institution. Benjamin Franklin got his start in life as an apprentice, as did Mark Twain, Horace Greeley, William Dean Howells, William Lloyd Garrison, and many other famous Americans. But the Industrial Revolution brought with it radical changes in the lives of craft apprentices. In this book, W. J. Rorabaugh has woven an intriguing collection of case histories, gleaned from numerous letters, diaries, and memoirs, into a narrative that examines the varied experiences of individual apprentices and documents the massive changes wrought by the Industrial Revolution.
