Did you know that the month of April was chosen to celebrate Jazz Appreciation Month in recognition of the birthdays of jazz greats such as Duke Ellington, Ella Fitzgerald, Gerry Mulligan and Tito Puente?
Jazz Appreciation Month, a project of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History, was signed into law in 2001 by President George W. Bush. The purpose of the month is to draw greater public attention to the extraordinary heritage and history of jazz and its importance as an American cultural heritage. In addition, it is intended to stimulate the current jazz scene and encourage people of all ages to participate in jazz — to study the music, attend concerts, listen to jazz on radio and recordings, read books about jazz and support institutional jazz programs.

Throughout the ages, women have always fought beside, behind, with men and alone when the need arose. In the United States, women fought in the Wild West, the Revolutionary War and the Civil War.
Native American and African American women also made great contributions on the battle front.
One of the women who engaged in combat during the Revolutionary War was Mary Ludwig-Hays, who became known as Molly Pitcher. Mary followed her husband, an artilleryman, to Valley Forge and the Battle of Monmouth in 1778. Mary's job was to carry pitchers of water to help cool the cannons. When Mary's husband was wounded in battle, she took his place.
