10 American Women’s Firsts with books! 19th Century pt. 2

I’m using Wikipedia  about historical American women & listing alongside the information a book about the women.
And,
luckily for you I do not make my lists where you have to click to a new
page for every person. They all will be on one post with a book related
to them. I’ll note where I didn’t find a book. They’re still getting
listed though. I will include their Wikipedia page for all women listed.

If
you know of a book specifically for a woman not listed or one that
talks about these women please let me know! I appreciate the help.
