The “Spirit of 1776” suffrage campaign wagon used by Edna Buckman Kearns in New York City and Long Island is a powerful symbol of grassroots organizing used in the first wave of the women’s rights movement in the United States. We are thrilled that the campaign wagon will be on exhibit at the New York State Museum in Albany, NY during 2020, the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution. We will publicize exhibition information during 2020.

Anthony until the end of March 2019. The statue will be unveiled in New York City’s Central Park in 2020, the first statue in the city park to honor women.
