Susan B. Anthony votes

Susan B. Anthony and more than 150 other women around the country voted—illegally—in 1872.

The judge at Susan B. Anthony’s trial was federal Judge Ward Hunt. Anthony described him as “a small-brained, pale-faced, prim-looking man.” Judge Hunt made one BIG mistake when he asked: “Has the prisoner anything to say why sentence shall not be pronounced?”

Susan B. Anthony replied: “Yes, your honor, I have many things to say ….”

It’s Susan B. Anthony who said: “Failure is impossible.”
