In 1873 Susan B. Anthony went on trial in Canandaigua NY for having cast a ballot in the presidential election of 1872. In doing so she seemingly violated both federal law and the NYS Constitution. Suffragists had been stunned and angered at women’s exclusion from the 15th Amendment. Our purpose in revisiting the trial is to get a better sense of the challenge’s suffragists faced in the late 19th century as they struggled to win the vote.
