The concerted effort that began in the 1920s to compile a more complete and accurate historical picture of Margaret Corbin in order to properly honor her valor is ongoing today.
DAR is dedicated to continue researching Margaret Corbin in order to spread greater awareness of her brave actions as well as to emphasize that she was a real woman, not just a story.
Actually finding her remains in an unmarked grave from almost 220 years ago may prove to be an insurmountable challenge, but the hope that new research will one day lead to the remains of Margaret Corbin is a goal to which DAR is committed.
