Adult Colonial Woman Costume
You will look ready for a life on the farm when you slip into the Adult Colonial Woman Costume. The ensemble comes with a long blue dress and white bonnet with blue bow accent. During the American Revolution, women may not have been able to be a part of the Continental Congress, but they played important roles. Wives and daughters of soldiers and offices were often camp followers, which means they were at military camps with the troops. They helped out in a number of ways such as cooking, washing and mending clothes and caring for the sick. One Camp follower was Molly Corbin who assisted her husband, John Corbin, who was an artilleryman. She learned how to load and fire cannons and was at her husband's side at the front lines. When he was killed, she stepped right in and continued to fire the canons. You won't need to do anything as drastic when you dressed in this outfit, but you can pay homage to Molly and all the other women of the revolution.
