Allied with either the British loyalist or American patriot cause, spy networks sprang up throughout the colonies. More and more records are beginning to surface that suggest something of what these “patriots in petticoats” endured and contributed to the American Revolution.

      Many of those can be found in a book titled “Colored Patriots of the American Revolution,” written by William Cooper Nell, an African-American author, in Redcoats and Petticoats, published by Holiday House, Inc., and illustrated by Ronald Himler, has continuously been in print in hardcover since Privately owned and managed, Holiday House remains one of the few independent book publishers in New York.
