Moll Pitcher 1731-1815 A.D.


Moll Pitcher (1731-1815) an either Irish or German woman transplanted to Colonial America  was a prominent seer of the 18th century. She played a role in the American Revolution ,both the American and the British forces consulted her. There is very little material about Moll Pitcher herself, but she shows up constantly in tales from the Revolutionary Era ,Colonial soldiers nicknamed her Moll Pitcher and spread her fame throughout the army. Her real name may have been Mary McCauley .  Her most remarkable prophecies foretold future inventions. They were uncannily accurate. She prophesied of horses that would be kept as ornaments . She also prophesied that music would be conducted hundreds of miles over wires from where it was played. This was the invention of the radio and television. Descriptions of her bear some incredible resemblances to Mother Shipton, and an entire possible hidden branch of Humanity that can be traced back to the Delphic & Cumean Sybils of the Roman era.  The genre I am referring to is commonly associated with the traditional Halloween Witch.   Many believed she was a witch .In a poem written about her by American poet John Greenleaf Whittier, "Moll Pitcher" in 1831. Some inaccuracies of fact are contained in the poem but the descriptive part is deemed correct:


" magnificent music conducted on wires hundreds of miles away will play at the instigation of man. " 1

Another Account of Moll Pitcher


 Two women, both named Molly Pitcher, figured as heroines in the American Revolution, and sometimes they are confused with each other. The best known Molly Pitcher was Mrs. Mary Hayes, wife of an artilleryman in the Continental Army. At the battle of Monmouth she carried water for the troops, and so was nicknamed “Molly Pitcher”. When her husband was wounded, she took his position and kept firing the cannon for the duration of the battle. General Washington commissioned her as a sergeant to reward her bravery.  The other Molly Pitcher was a renowned seeress, born Mary (Molly) Diamond. She married Robert Pitcher, a shoemaker, when she was 20 years old.  Molly’s ability as a psychic gave her access to British military secrets which she passed on to the revolutionaries. When General Washington took command of the American Army at Cambridge on July 3, 1775, Mary was presented to Washington as the "Daughter of our regiment." Washington said: "You have adopted a sibyl and a saint.””During the ceremony, Molly had a vision which she later told to Washington: an eagle hovered over him without unfolding its wings. Not until several years later was the eagle chosen as our national bird.Molly Pitcher also predicted several inventions, some of which remain to be discovered:


"Thousands shall go behind a curl of smoke [locomotives]... Carriages will go at lightning speed and none shall see what propelled them [automobiles]... Men will ascend and descend Jacob’s Ladder of heaven like angels [the NASA space program]... Magnificent music will be conducted on wires hundreds of miles away and will play at the instigation of man...Men shall arise who will command the storms, turning and directing them at pleasure. Great heat will be prevented by the use of clouds which can be turned on or off at will, and water shall be pumped from them where drought is upon the earth. The frozen water in winter shall be thawed by glorious sunbeams led by sun conductors and several other wonderful inventions.” 2
