An Illegal Vote

Susan B Anthony

On November 5, 1872, Susan B. Anthony defied the law to vote, and was later fined $100.

Forty-one years earlier, to the day, Nat Turner, American slave and revolt leader, was tried, convicted, and sentenced to death in Virginia. His revolt has been celebrated in William Styron’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, The Confessions of Nat Turner (1967), and in a recent movie, The Birth of a Nation (2016).
