CRAP !!
Corbin was wounded in the Revolutionary War. Her husband, John, joined the
continental army and Margaret accompanied him-as was the custom for women of the
day-washing, cooking and nursing. When British and Hessian troops attacked Fort
Washington, New York, John and his gunner were killed. Margaret took over loading
and firing the cannon until she was wounded by grapeshot that tore he shoulder, chest,
and jaw.
She never regained use of her left arm, and in 1779 was awarded a pension for her
distinguished bravery.
