Thanks for sharing this interesting stuff.
A Susan B. Anthony quilt. I bet those quilters are grinning.
I love the videos you just put on your site. I’d seen a few of them, but not in one place. You make learning about this part of history a joy.
I like this weblog very much. I was one of those guys who had a teacher in junior high who taught us about ALL the civil rights movements.
Couldn’t have predicted I would become so interested in the suffrage movement. This is terrific stuff.
Getting an overview is quite a feat. I feel as if I’m following a movement in the making.
