In honor of Women’s History Month, I’m so happy to feature K.M. Waldvogel and her marvelous book, Spies, Soldiers, Couriers, & Saboteurs: Women of the American Revolution.

Each woman featured in this book is a great example of bravery in the face of danger and a commitment to a cause bigger than themselves.
