IN OTHER NEWS: The National Women’s History Project is celebrating its 35th year with a big party on March 28th. Video. Follow special coverage on video during Women’s History Month in March. Video.

This video announces the “Spirit of 1776” suffrage wagon digital library in the planning stages. The 1913 news article may be the first photo taken of the wagon prior to its presentation to the New York State Woman Suffrage Association in Manhattan in 1913. Note the article to the left: “‘Women Should Strike’ Says Woman Lawyer.” While it might bring a smile to our faces today, it’s a terrific example of how such an article could strike fear in the hearts of those opposed to women voting back in 1913.

Suffrage Campaign Wagon

In 2013, the centennial celebration of the “Spirit of 1776” wagon’s first journey was acknowledged by resolutions passed by both houses of the New York State Legislature. The wagon was exhibited at the New York State Museum in 2010 and at the state Capitol in Albany, NY in 2012. Photo: 2012 at the Governor’s exhibit, “From Seneca Falls to the Supreme Court.”
