The Battle of Monmouth was fought here on 28 June 1778. Monmouth was the last and the longest battle fought between the two main armies, Great Britain and The American Colonies. After this, the fighting involved secondary forces (though still large forces), as the war shifted to the southern colonies. Weather was 96F, warm and humid that day. At least half of the casualties on both sides died of heat exhaustion. Mary McCauley became a legend in this battle for her heroic actions in bringing water to the revolutionaries and operating a cannon…earning her the nickname, Molly Pitcher.
