Susan B. Anthony’s Trial for Voting Makes for a Great Program on August 26th!!!
Thinking about a program for August 26th (the anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment) or a special event for your friends, organization or club? Go straight to the source: Susan B. Anthony’s arrest in 1872 and her trial for voting. The trial is a hit with audiences if you’re looking for an event honoring Susan. The internet is a great resource for finding quotes from Susan, as well as her speeches, and for reading out loud. Here’s Susan B.’s petition to Congress in January of 1874. And resources from Susan’s trial record. With the upcoming 2020 anniversary of women voting in the United States for a hundred years, start thinking about events that will educate about our rich tradition. Think about it!
And take a few minutes to take this quiz about Susan B. Anthony.
