SPIRIT OF 1776 CAMPAIGN SUFFRAGE WAGON
One of the few women's rights museum artifacts with its own web site—updates thru 2020 centennial when wagon will be on exhibit at NYS Museum.


The “Spirit of 1776” suffrage wagon is representative of the wide variety of ways in which Votes for Women activists made the news with various stunts and performance art. Activists—including Edna Kearns, Rosalie Jones, Elisabeth Freeman, Irene Davison, and others— used horse-drawn wagons. The activists also used decorated autos. They painted hub caps, used automobiles for speakers’ platforms, rural grassroots organizing, auto tours, outdoor meetings, suffrage taxi services, pageants, and parades—wherever and whenever they could get attention in the public arena. They gave speeches on city streets, on horseback, at opera houses, and private homes.

New York State celebrated its 100 years of women voting in 2017.
