Video about how activists marched from NYC to Albany, NY 100 years ago…

One hundred years ago Rosalie Jones and a determined band of suffrage activists marched from New York City to Albany, NY, the state capitol. This video highlights another example of the ways to which these women (and men) put themselves on the line for freedom. SPECIAL VIDEO: Short feature about Rosalie Jones with images from her career. Jones led a “hike” from New York to Washington, DC in 1913 to join the big suffrage parade there.

She also led a 1912 hike” to Albany and traveled with activist Elisabeth Freeman in a horse-drawn wagon trip to Ohio to campaign for the cause there.
