Big Damn Heroes:
Margaret Corbin - (November 12, 1751 – January 16, 1800)
Margaret followed her husband John who was enlisted with the First Company of Pennsylvania Artiller as a matross, a soldier who loads and unloads cannons, to his military post. While stationed at Fort Washington on November 16, 1776, the post was attacked by the British. John manned a cannon on top of the fort but was killed during the attack. Margaret was at her husband side when he fell and instead of running for safety, she took over her husband’s post at the cannon and defended the fort until she was seriously wounded by enemy fire. The fort ultimately fell to the British. Corbin’s wounds from battle never fully healed. On July 6, 1779, the United States Board of War, so impressed by her actions and bravery, awarded her half the monthly pay of a soldier in the Continental Army and enrolled her in the Corps of Invalids, created by Congress for wounded soldiers. She was officially discharged from the Continental Army in 1783. With this act from the board, Corbin was the first woman in the United States to receive a military pension.

Fun fact about me: when I was little I thought that you were required to say prayers every night but I knew I didn’t believe in god, so I usually prayed to various women in history.
(Generally Amelia Earhart or Princess Kaulani, but sometimes I’d switch things up and go with Margaret Corbin or Elizabeth the First.)
