When the State of New York erects a statue of activist Sojourner Truth on state land in Ulster County in the Hudson Valley, it will be the second Truth statue in that county. The other Truth statue is of her as a child now on a street corner in Port Ewen, near Kingston, NY. A statue of Rosalie Jones, Votes for Women activist, is planned for Cold Spring Harbor State Park on Long Island. There are 25 statues on New York State land. Of these, only two are of women.
