On this day in 1778, John Paul Jones led a raid on the port at Whitehaven, England. With just 30 men he captured one of the two forts defending the town and set fire to it. This was but one of his daring engagements during the Revolutionary War. Nearly 18 months later he would fight a naval battle against the HMS Serapis, a 50-gun British warship. During that engagement he gave his most famous line, "I have not yet begun to fight!." A few hours later the Serapis surrendered. Jones is buried in a crypt under the chapel at the Annapolis Naval Academy.

They have him teaching at several Universities.
I think not. He’ll never get out of Colorado’s Federal prison, alive.

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.
