And the World Jogged On! The Arrest, Trial, and Sentencing of Susan B. Anthony
Presenter: Janiece K. Robinson
In 1873, Susan B. Anthony walked up the stone steps and into history. She entered the federal circuit court house expecting a fair trial. Instead, the judge denied Susan the right to speak in her defense and to have a jury verdict. Her crime? She voted in the 1872 presidential election. Newspapers from around the country carried articles on the arrest, trial, and injustice. As Women’s Suffrage became a household conversation, a battle-worn nation faced another division and strife.
