Now Available: The 19th Amendment Victory: A Newspaper History

Malvern, PA (February 11, 2020) – Accessible Archives, Inc., a digital publisher of full-text primary source historical collections, announces the release of  Part VII: The 19th Amendment Victory: A Newspaper History, 1762-1922 to its Women’s Suffrage Collection. This collection documents how generations of Women fought for the right to vote.

The ratification of this amendment on August 18, 1920 was a long and arduous undertaking which started during the revolutionary period when American colonists were fighting against lack of representation in government.

The first half of the 19th century found strong women, a sizable number now educated, running businesses, moving across the country as pioneers, participating in reform movements and making their voices heard.

Follow the issues leading up to the 1848 Seneca Falls convention organized by Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Delve into newspaper articles documenting how the anti-slavery movement fed into the suffrage movement. You can read those divergent arguments which motivated leading crusaders like Margaret Fuller, the Grimke sisters, Susan B. Anthony and Lucy Stone.

Learn firsthand how the Civil War, Reconstruction, voting demands in the 1870s, and World War I all contributed to women’s and America’s victory.

The 19th Amendment collection begins with newspaper articles from the 1760s and concludes with those surrounding legal victory in the 1920s. Accessible Archives has carefully uncovered over 18,000 articles from of its rich historical archive not previously included in the Suffrage Collection to bring you this exceptional compilation in one searchable database.

According to Iris Hanney, President, Unlimited Priorities, “We are delighted to bring out this collection that further documents how the vote for Women evolved.”
