In Ladies of Liberty, Roberts brings to life the extraordinary accomplishments of 18th and 19th century women who laid the groundwork for a better society. Roberts recounts the stories of first ladies and freethinkers, educators and explorers, with insight and humor and draws on personal correspondence, private journals, and other primary sources, many of them previously unpublished. The stories told include the lives of Abigail Adams, Dolley Madison, Rebecca Gratz, Louise Livingston, Sacagawea, and others. 

Ladies of Liberty sheds new light on the generation of heroines, reformers, and visionaries who helped shape our nation, finally giving these extraordinary ladies the recognition they so greatly deserve.
