The State of New York kicked off the 2017 suffrage centennial in Albany, NY on March 1, 2017, Women’s History Month. And Woodstock Times (Woodstock, NY) published the story by Marguerite Kearns about how the “Spirit of 1776” wagon had Woodstock, NY ties and came to be part of New York State history.

Olivia Twine highlighted the exhibition of the “Spirit of 1776” wagon at the State Capitol in Albany during March, Women’s History Month, and at the New York State Museum through May 2018. Other events and celebrations during the 2017 state suffrage centennial are also noted.
