i just want it to be clear that i fucking hate every single one of the founding fathers and everyone involved in that time era. i understand & acknowledge that they were ALL racist & sexist,
homophobic + just all out horrible people.
i only like the characterized versions of them from popular things like Hamilton + Turn, 1776 + We Made America.
i am never defending any of the real life version of them or their actions.
I always see countless numbers of posts about the men that fought in the American revolution but it seems like not many people “remember the ladies”
Margret Cochran Corbin, commonly referred to as “Captain Molly” was one of the women on the front line. She was born November 12, 1751 in Pennsylvania. She married her husband, John Corbin (whom she would fight beside) in 1772. When he joined the continental army, she joined right along with him, becoming an aide that would help the men with chore-like tasks when needed. But November 1776, while stationed in Fort Washington, their camp was attacked.
Margret quickly joined in the fight, assisting her husband, John, with his cannon. However, he was gravely injured, leaving him dead beside her. Nevertheless, she persisted, taking over his main position and kept firing the cannon. She too was badly injured, but she lived. Even so, he injuries were so graphic that she never fully recovered, leaving one of her arms useless.
She was the first woman to receive a military pension. When she died, she was buried with full military honors at West Point Cemetery.
