Mary Ludwig Hays' noble selfless actions in the Battle of Monmouth during American Revolution earned her the endearing name of Molly Pitcher
by the American troops she was aiding . . . She was and remains a Great American Patriot! And the best way to honor Molly Pitcher (1744–1832)
is the following account of her efforts during the Battle of Monmouth...

Molly Pitcher's fame began two years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence by the American Colonies. The fight for independence
had yet to take a favorable turn toward the Colonials. As the war continued, 28 June 1778 proved to be another day of fighting with stories of bravery.

Monmouth rocked with musket and gun fire.
The colonial cannon line under General Stirling aimed the barrels of its guns straight down on the British Redcoats as they attempted to cross a causeway.
Stirling's left-wing cannons bought time for General Washington to take command and regroup General Lee's scattered forces.
The gun line met the demands of the mission.

The heat of June 1778 soared to 96 degrees as the guns barked at the British. The cannon barrels smoked, and men fell from heatstroke.

In this stifling heat, a woman, Mary Ludwig Hays, walked back and forth from a well (or possibly a nearby creek)
carrying water to the hot men and smoldering guns. Her husband, William Hays, manned one of the valuable cannons.
They were making a difference by holding the causeway.

As American men fell from wounds and heat, the woman's bucket of water (or "pitcher") became precious. The men among the cannons began to call her ...
Molly Pitcher. A large woman, she reportedly carried wounded men away from the line to shade trees as she made her trip back to the well.

During one of her many returns to the line, she saw her husband fall.
A Colonial officer ordered his gun moved to the rear to make room on the line; he had no one left to man it. But Molly Pitcher stepped forward
to keep her husband's gun roaring - every cannon was important.

The liberties of our Country, the freedom of our civil constitution are worth defending at all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks.
We have receiv'd them as a fair Inheritance from our worthy Ancestors: They purchas'd them for us with toil and danger and expence of treasure and blood; and transmitted them to us with care and diligence.
It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle; or be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men.
Of the latter we are in most danger at present: Let us therefore be aware of it. Let us contemplate our forefathers and posterity; and resolve to maintain the rights bequeath'd to us from the former, for the sake of the latter.
Instead of sitting down satisfied with the efforts we have already made, which is the wish of our enemies, the necessity of the times, more than ever, calls for our utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude, and perseverance.
Let us remember that "if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom." It is a very serious consideration, which should deeply impress our minds, that millions yet unborn may be the miserable sharers of the event.
Samuel Adams, Essay, written under the pseudonym "Candidus," in The Boston Gazette (14 October 1771)

Honor, justice, and humanity, forbid us tamely to surrender that freedom which we received from our gallant ancestors, and which our innocent posterity have a right to receive from us. We cannot endure the infamy and guilt of resigning succeeding generations to that wretchedness which inevitably awaits them if we basely entail hereditary bondage on them. - Continental Congress Declaration, 1775

A departure from principle becomes a precedent for a second;
that second for a third; and so on, till the bulk of society is reduced to mere
automatons of misery, to have no sensibilities left but for sinning and suffering…
And the fore horse of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression.

-Thomas Jefferson

Good afternoon.

Fourteen years that I have been here, FL has placed third. One day, when I hit the lottery, FL will be in first.

Ok, I'm not holding my breath...
