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.

"A teacher asked her 6th grade class how many of them were Obama fans.

Not really knowing what an Obama fan is, but wanting to be liked by the teacher, all the kids raised their hands except for Little Johnny…

The teacher asked Little Johnny why he has decided to be different… again.

Little Johnny said, “Because I’m not an Obama fan.”

The teacher asked, “Why aren’t you a fan of Obama?”

Johnny said, “Because I’m a Republican.”

The teacher asked him why he’s a Republican.

Little Johnny answered, “Well, my Mom’s a Republican and my Dad’s a Republican, so I’m a Republican.”

Annoyed by this answer, the teacher asked, “If your mom was a moron and your dad was an idiot, what would that make you?”

Little Johnny replied, “That would make me an Obama fan.”"

In short order, the unionized teacher accused Little Johnny of purposefully chewing a cookie into a gun shape and frightening the entire region.

Thinking quickly, Little Johnny chewed another cookie into a finger to the oaf of a teacher and was declared Mayor Deluxe!

Then all the people were happy :)

I don’t know what it is. I’m guessing that it may be a Maine Coon cat, but I can’t be sure.

It sure looks like a Maine Coon or Norwegian Forest cat. They are the two largest breeds and look very similar.
