Historically Speaking Lecture Series

Molly Pitcher and the Women of the Army

Wednesday, March 25, 7pm

Visitor Center, Monmouth Battlefield State Park

16 Rt. 33, Manalapan, NJ 07726

 

Dr. David Martin will give us a look at the story of Molly Pitcher in the broader context of the contributions made by women in the Revolution: as warriors and spies, but more so as a vital part of armies in the field.

He will summarize current research on “women of the army,” drawing particularly from the 1996 book "Belonging to the Army" by Holly Mayer, and from recent research by historian John Rees. He will then look at the story of Molly Pitcher (of Monmouth Battlefield fame), specifically its historical background and subsequent growth into legend.
 

The lecture is free and all are welcome. Light refreshments will be served.
