Damn' Rebel Bitches

(1997)
Women of the '45
A non fiction book by

 
Covering the history of the last Jacobite Rising, this book tells the stories of the many women caught up in the turbulent events of 1745-46. Female support for the Stuart cause was significant, and the government of the day feared these women who gave money and hospitality or acted as spies. Some stood with their men, while others acted in direct opposition to them. Eighteen of the most prominent women were arrested after the defeat of the Rising; hundreds actively involved themselves on both sides; and many others were raped, persecuted, or transported to the colonies. With one famous exception, historians have ignored female participation in the '45 Rising. This book, based largely on original documents and letters, aims to redress the balance.
