were desperately trying to collect pensions and back pay for their
husbands the Tory wives were having an easier time regaining their
property that was confiscated during the war. It seems since many of
the wives of exiled men stayed in the family homes they were able to
secure at least some of the estates merely by living in them. When
the Tory wives petitioned the state governments for getting the rest
of their belongings, money, (many even petitioned on behalf of their
exhiled husbands to allow the husbands to return home and live in the
family estates) etc. they had an advantage over the patriot wives
because of their social status. Apparently the social class sticks
together even across sides. Doesn't seem right, does it.
