Mercy Otis Warren
An intelligent and independent woman who is thrown into the center of Patriot politics.
Mercy Otis Warren was accustomed to speaking her mind. With a sharp wit and a malicious pen, she wrote merciless criticism of unpopular public officials and secured her reputation for eloquence. With this reputation she was encouraged to write more texts including one of the first histories of her own time. Later, however, her acerbic pen was turned against the US constitution as she took a stance as an Anti-Federalist.
