Denniele's Block #2
with a ghostly Susan B
March 8 is International Women's Day so we're celebrating today
with Block #2 from the Yankee Diary Quilt, Susan B.'s Star.
In the 1870s Susan B. Anthony was tried in the Canandaigua New York Courthouse for "knowingly voting without having a lawful right to vote." Carrie Richards, our Yankee Diarist, was living nearby at the time and undoubtedly well aware of the trial, which received national attention.
