The shocking tale of the election where Susan B. Anthony made history by casting a voting ballot. She was subsequently  arrested abut her daring act of registering to vote inspired like-minded friends, who were also arrested. Her trial and conviction were grossly unfair and lay a strong foundation for young readers to understand why suffragettes had to fight for the vote.
