The "Spirit of 1776" article in "New York Archives"You can read all about the “Spirit of 1776″ suffrage wagon’s confrontation and threats in an article from the fall issue of “New York Archives” that’s still on the stands. The trip from New York City to Long Island for a month of campaigning in 1913 had a high point when the wagon arrived in Huntington, NY in a grand parade. People who were lined up on both sides of the street witnessed a historic event. That’s when the confrontation and threats were recorded by a Brooklyn Daily Eagle reporter. You can read all about it! This article gives an overview of the campaign wagon’s history and what was going on at this time.

  1. Hi Marguerite….loved your article in the “archives’ mag….so fascinating that “General” Jones’s mother was virulently anti-suffrage…..Would have posted to my FB page, but it wouldn’t let me (wouldn’t take a pdf?)…

    Best,

    Nate
