Molly Maguire

These articles state that The Molly Maguires obtained their name from an Irish widow that fought against the landlords that wanted to take her land back because she was Catholic. Tenant farmers in Ireland began cross-dressing and rebelling against the Protestant landlords. They would tell,"Take that from a son of Molly Maguire!"

I'm really glad that the coal miners didn't cross dress...
