Putnam Suffrage

Historian to discuss women’s vote

What happened in Putnam County as the movement for women’s suffrage played out? Find out at a talk by County Historian Sarah Johnson at the Putnam History Museum at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 24.

A century ago, protestors demanded New York give women the right to vote.

Johnson will discuss local involvement for and against the legislation that gave U.S. women the right to vote and how different county towns voted. Admission is $5 or free for museum members.
