    Not sure which is worse in that post, the abject stupidity of it, or the complete insecurity of the poster.

    No, but you've corrected a rusty memory. Molly Pitcher was Mary Hayes, who also loaded cannon in battle.

    The distinction Maggie had was she was the only woman wounded in active fighting.

    Both cool stories though.

    I didn't google it. I recall Molly pitcher in a painting where she was swabbing the cannon (practice was to swab the cannon after firing to prevent remaining sparks from blowing up the charge-the heat of the barrel evaporated the water before the next charge was put into the cannon. after her husband fell to the enemy

    Think about this: Queen Elizabeth I supported Sir Walter Raleigh's idea to send expeditions to North America. Her attempts at establishing a permanent colony failed, BUT these expeditions permitted England to lay claim to a large swath of the Eastern Seaboard and set the stage for successful colonies at Jamestown and Plymouth just a few years later. She also supported the expansion of a blue-water navy that allowed her successors to protect and preserve these colonies and expand England's presence in the New World. I realize she wasn't American and is unlikely to have her portrait placed on U.S. currency, but she was a woman central to American history, more so than most of the men.
