Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This is a living document that was put to persuasive use, and in reading it today you can share the drama that much of America followed daily. Susan B. Anthony's trial made headlines across the nation and elevated her crusade to a grander stage." -- Lynn Sherr

About the Author

American reformer Susan Brownell Anthony was born on February 15, 1820, in Adams, Massachusetts. The daughter of Quakers, Anthony taught school in New York State from 1839 to 1849. She returned home, now Rochester, New York, where she met many of the leading abolitionists at that time, including Frederick Douglass and Wendell Phillips. She joined the temperance movement, where, in 1851, she met Elizabeth Cady Stanton, a leader of the women's rights movement.

Stanton and Anthony became lifelong friends and co-workers in the struggle for women's suffrage. Both supported abolition before and during the Civil War. After Black men were given the right to vote by the Fifteenth Amendment, Anthony campaigned for the same rights for women. In 1869 she helped to organize the National Woman Suffrage Association. Anthony published a weekly women's rights journal, "The Revolution," from 1868 until 1870.

In 1872 at Rochester, New York, Anthony voted in the presidential election to test her status as a citizen. She was tried and fined $100, but refused to pay the fine.

From 1881 to 1886 Stanton and Anthony coedited the six-volume HISTORY OF WOMAN SUFFRAGE. When the National Woman Suffrage Association merged with the American Woman Suffrage Association in 1890 to become the National American Woman Suffrage Association, Anthony served as its president from 1892 to 1900.

Anthony died on March 13, 1906, in Rochester, New York, fourteen years before the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified, giving women the right to vote.
