Revisiting the Suffrage Wagon

In my blog post of July 14, 2011 entitled "Climb Aboard the Suffrage Wagon!" I introduced you to Edna Buckman Kearns and her suffrage wagon. Edna's granddaughter Marguerite has been fighting to get the suffrage wagon on permanent exhibit at the New York State Museum in Albany. That fight is still going strong...

BUT (You knew there was a but, right?)

The suffrage wagon is on display RIGHT NOW! Through May, the suffrage wagon is part of an exhibition at the State Capitol in the Hall of Governors title "From Seneca Falls to the Supreme Court: New York's Women Leading the Way."

For more information, check out the Suffrage Wagon News Channel http://suffragewagon.wordpress.com/2012/04/01/suffrage-wagon-in-exhibit-from-seneca-falls-to-the-supreme-court/

& the press release from Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office http://www.oldsite.suffragewagon.org/CuomoRELEASE.pdf

Hopefully I will get to go in the next few days... I'm most looking forward to seeing The Lily signed by Amelia Bloomer!

  1. That's cool. I wish they'd leave the exhibit there for awhile.
