Everyone's heard of Paul Revere, George Washington, Benedict Arnold, and Peyton Randolph, but who knows about Molly Pitcher, Penelope Barker, Esther Reed, or Patience Wright? Well, if you haven't, you've come to the right place. Not all of them picked up muskets. Some chose to fight with an arrow or a cannon. Others chose a pen, a needle, a pitchfork, sculpting tools, and an apron. Some of these women fought up close. One contributed from thousands of miles away. But, if it weren't for these women, we might be singing My country Tis of Thee with its original lyrics. Enter at your own risk - you might learn something
