The ratification by Tennessee of the Nineteenth Amendment to the US Constitution has been getting a great deal of publicity this year with the announcement of a film scheduled for release in 2020 based on the 2018 book by Elaine Weiss, The Woman’s Hour (Viking Press). The ratification vote in Tennessee caused a sensation all over the nation, so much so that 100 years later, in 2020, we’ll be able to witness some of the drama.
CHECK OUT THE BOOK, “THE WOMAN’S HOUR”
The Woman’s Hour is an excellent read. It’s difficult to make a historical event a page turner, but this has been accomplished. And the number of women’s suffrage events for 2020 is so extensive we’re having trouble keeping up with the crunch. And it’s an excellent feeling to know that the work of hundreds of volunteers over the past decade is finally paying off.

Pomeroy Foundation to erect free historic road markers across the nation? Are you planning a summer trip in 2020 to visit some of the many special programs and exhibits?
