    names you end up hearing a lot - Betsy Ross, Molly Pitcher, Dolly Madison.

    Great series idea, and an outstanding diary - keep 'em coming, please!

      Well, Betsy Ross and Molly Pitchers are semi-myths, although there was a real woman who formed the basis of the Molly Pitcher story. Maybe I should do a "Mythology" edition, too, since you 're right that those are names most people know.
      And I liek the Dolly Madison idea. She was a great First Lady. I'd like to so Abigail Adams as well.

      Thanks for the ideas!
