About us

Suffrage Wagon News ChannelAward-winning Suffrage Wagon News Channel covers suffrage news, features and action campaigns, as well as columns about travel, food, history, books, and human interest related to the suffrage movement. This year, 2015, is the first season of the “Spirit of 1776” suffrage storytelling.

We’ve been described as a “homey place” for digital visitors to stop by and visit. One commentator has even called us The Prairie Home Companion of suffrage storytelling series. The site highlights updates on the exhibition at the New York State Museum of the suffrage campaign wagon used by suffrage activist Edna Buckman Kearns.
