If you are headed to Long Beach, New York this summer, enter the beach at the Boardwalk’s main entrance so you can take a look at the marker commemorating Edna Buckman Kearns and her suffrage work in 1913.
It is one of many markers commemorating the votes for women organizing on Long Island.
Suffrage Wagon News Channel is commemorating the extensive work by volunteers that led to the approval and ratification of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution in 1920.
There has been a monumental effort conducted to bring this once little-known volunteerism to the attention of the American public by more contemporary activists who are now interested in publishing a book on the national votes for women trail. Visit Suffrage Wagon News Channel for more information.
