One hundred years ago, all through the month of July 1913, the “Spirit of 1776” suffrage wagon traveled for freedom throughout Long Island (NY). A quick overview of what happened during this suffrage centennial observance in 2013 can be seen through videos, special postings, and the story of the resolution that passed both houses of the New York State Legislature on June 18, 2013 designating July 1, 2012 the “Spirit of 1776” Wagon Day in NYS. It’s a suffrage centennial celebration that brings the story home to us today.
