The Elizabeth Murray Project

looks at the eventful life of Elizabeth Murray as a window into the world of revolutionary America. Murray was a shopkeeper in 18th-century Boston (selling imported British fashions) and married three times. Her friends included officers in both the Colonial and British armies, and her home was used as quarters by both armies. (California State University, Long Beach, National Endowment for the Humanities)
