This is the first in a series of shirts featuring badass women of war! The deeds in the story of Molly Pitcher are generally attributed to Mary Ludwig Hays. At the Battle of Monmouth in June 1778, Mary Hays attended to the soldiers by giving them water. As her husband was carried off the battlefield, Mary took his place at the cannon and continued to "swab and load" the cannon using her husband's ramrod. At one point, a British musket ball or cannonball flew between her legs and tore off the bottom of her skirt. She supposedly said something to the effect of, "Well, that could have been worse," and went back to loading the cannon.
