13 American Women's Firsts with books! 19th Century part 3

Welcome back to a list containing historical American women first to do [insert accomplishment].

 I am taking information or condensing information from this Wikipedia page. With the year and snip of information a book about the person is included.
Some women do not have books or I simply cannot find them. It's only one person running this blog so I can miss things fairly easily. If you know of a book that is just about the woman or one that mentions the woman please let me know. One of my lists includes a school book that mentions a lady. So, I mean, anything really.

Every woman on the list includes years, their name, accomplishment, a book (or several), and include their Wikipedia page. I know many people still stick their nose up to the idea of reading Wikipedia for facts but it's here to stay m'friends.

My tags only list a few things because blogger keeps telling me I've hit a limit if I pass ten tags. Maybe I am over tagging but I love tags.

Did I bite off more than I can chew with this? Probably. Do I care? Not at the moment. Will this silently die and no more posts? Possibly.
