The Arrest and Trial of Susan B. Anthony: Strategy, Tactics and the Struggle for the Vote
2020 celebrates the 100th Anniversary of women having the right to vote. Susan B. Anthony voted in the 1872 federal election resulting in her arrest here in Rochester, NY. She was put on trial in Canandaigua and convicted. This real-life Rochester drama gave Susan B. Anthony the deserved reputation as the most effective advocate and leader of the woman suffrage movement.
Presented by Dennis Carr, a founding member, past president and current trustee of The Friends of Mount Hope Cemetery. He is the Senior Tour Guide at Mount Hope, with 2019 marking his 41st year leading tours of the cemetery. Dennis is also on staff at the Edward G. Miner Library at the University of Rochester Medical Center, assisting students, researchers, clinical staff, and faculty.
