Danielle’s research focuses on the life of Angelica Schuyler Church, eldest daughter of the prominent American Revolutionary War Major General Philip Schuyler. Danielle is particularly interested in the political and economic intersectionality of women’s lives during the American Revolution and the alternate routes to power women found when none were inherently offered to them. From taking control of her marital life by eloping, to passing military intelligence to her father during the Revolution, to forming connections between Americans and refugees escaping the Terror of the French Revolution, Angelica Schuyler Church was an active participant in some of the most formative moments in 18th-century history. Close study of her character allows discussion of 18th Century life from an alternate perspective than that typically represented in the American historical narrative. Danielle’s research is undertaken as a New York State Museum Research Fellow in History
