The grave of Margaret “Captain Molly” Corbin (1751-1800) is at West Point, New York at the side of the U.S.M.A. Chapel. When the British attacked Fort Washington in 1776, she was wounded in action while substituting for her fallen husband who lay at her side. For her heroism in battle the Congress awarded her a pension. Today, her memorial which was erected in 1926, by the New York Daughters of the American Revolution serves as inspiration for female cadets at all of the military academies.
