This lesson investigates Elizabeth Murray's experiences as a shopkeeper in the mid-eighteenth century. Her experiences will serve as a case study of what women could achieve in colonial America in specific circumstances and with particular advantages. Since Murray's experiences were not shared by the majority of colonial women, this case study will help explain why many women without her advantages had fewer opportunities and, therefore, less independence. Students will examine the experiences of colonial Americans within the context of their era through analysis of primary documents, using them to understand important aspects of daily life in the eighteenth century.
