With Special Guest: Author/Performer Sandra Weber portraying Inez Milholland
Tuesday, Feb. 18, at 6:30 p.m., Lake Forest Senior Living Community Center, 8 Lake Forest Drive, Plattsburgh, NY
Plattsburgh, N.Y. – Please join the Clinton County Historical Association (CCHA) on Tuesday, Feb. 18, at 6:30 p.m. for “The Story of Suffragist Inez Milholland”. Special guest Author/Performer Sandra Weber will portray Inez Milholland. The presentation will be hosted by CCHA Director Helen Nerska and will take place at the Lake Forest Senior Living Center in Plattsburgh.
Inez Milholland, buried in Lewis, New York, was a nationally respected suffragist who eventually gave her life for the movement she so believed in. She may be best known for leading the historic 1913 Washington, DC, Suffrage parade on a white horse, but there is much more to her activism and support of the suffragist movement. Her story will be introduced with a 15-minute video, “Forward Into the Light”.
In 1912, Milholland spoke in Plattsburgh. Her father and sister also worked to help persuade Clinton County voters to approve a 1917 change to the New York State Constitution that allowed women to vote.
CCHA lectures are free and open to the public.
The CCHA Museum is open Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, visit www.clintoncountyhistorical.org or call 518-561-0340. Museum admission is free, and donations are accepted.
