“Spirit of 1776” suffrage wagon rocked the cradle with NYS Legislative Resolution in 2013

Both houses of the New York State Legislature passed a resolution on June 18, 2013 commemorating the “Spirit of 1776” suffrage campaign wagon’s centennial of its first journey from Manhattan to Long Island in July of 1913. The resolution rocked the cradle and brought together cultural heritage tourism as well as the need for New Yorkers to get started planning its own suffrage centennial in 2017.

Suffrage Wagon has its own web site (called Suffrage Wagon News Channel), and the wagon itself is in the collection of the New York State Museum. There are more than 30 videos on the Suffrage Wagon YouTube and Vimeo channels. Plus a Suffrage Wagon Cooking School, twice weekly postings, and a quarterly newsletter.
