12" Wooden Ruler made in U.S.A. of American-grown basswood. The women on this ruler played important roles during the colonial and revolutionary periods of United States history. For example, English-born Deborah, Lady Moody (1586-1659?), founded the village of Gravesend, now part of Brooklyn. She is the only woman know to have started a village in colonial America. The dates listed are birth and death years, when known. We also list one detail about each of the women on the list, usually the important accomplishment that they are best known for. The "head" image is that of political writer Mercy Otis Warren (1728-1814), who wrote poems and plays attacking British authority. Our illustration of her was inspired by a painting from c.1763 by John Singleton Copley (1738-1815), now in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
