Summary
"Women of the Constitution follows in the footsteps of the 1912 work The Wives of the Signers, which was devoted to biographical sketches of the spouses of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. This new publication will be the first work devoted exclusively to brief biographies of the forty-three wives of the signers of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. Each entry includes vital information, where known such as birth, parents, marriage, children, and death as well as a footnoted biography with its own bibliography. Also provided are illustrations of many of the wives and their homes, as well as an appendix describing the now historic residences in which the signers and their spouses resided." --
