A week ago, we talked about the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. Remember what it was…without looking back? Of course you do. It’s the Amendment that granted women the right to vote.
On August 18, 1920, Tennessee became the 36th state to ratify the Amendment, making it law. And on this day (August 26, 1920), Secretary Bainbridge Colby certified the Amendment’s adoption. It was now officially legal for U.S. citizens of the fairer sex to vote in elections.
I’m not sure I need to say a lot more…so I won’t. Class is dismissed early today.
And we are off this afternoon to sunny, sweltering Arizona to visit our son for a couple of days. I’m taking the laptop, so there might be time for a little bit of writing. But don’t feel like you have to show up or anything. Get out, enjoy the weather (it’s going to be beautiful), take a hike, ride your bike.
