Coming in 2020.....

"Remember the Ladies..."
An exhibit celebrating the 100th anniversary of the ratification of
19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote

In a letter dated March 31, 1776, Abigail Adams wrote to her husband John Adams urging him and other members of the Continental Congress not to forget about the nation’s women when fighting for independence. It was one of the first steps in the fight for equal rights for women in America. In her letter, Abigail asks, “… I desire you would remember the ladies and be more generous and favorable to them than your ancestors.”

More than 150 years later, in 1920, the 19th Amendment was ratified, giving women the right to vote. The Historical Society is planning a year-long exhibit about the suffrage movement. If you have any relevant photos, objects or documents, please consider loaning them to the Museum on the Green for 2020. Contact our curator Lin Scarduzio at 860-633-6890 or by email at if you have something that might be a nice addition to our exhibits.
