Women's Heritage Trail
— Monmouth Battlefield State Park —Mary Hays, nicknamed "Molly," joined her husband as many wives of the time did, while he was serving in the artillery during the American Revolution. Her husband was a gunner in Captain Francis Proctor's company of the Pennsylvania Artillery Regiment. She traveled with the troops helping with laundering, cooking or nursing the soldiers in exchange for rations. At the Battle of Monmouth—during a 3-hour cannonade-she helped her husband's gun crew by running cartridges from the ammunition box to the loader.
