With The Fourth of July one week away here is the legend of Molly Pitcher. Some research indicates she was a real person who served during the American Revolutionary war, others say it is a myth and still others claim the story is of a composite character.

Later I found out that was a well monument and not an actual well. More about the battle field park here:
