Suffrage Centennial Conference of the Long Island and the Woman Suffrage Movement on Saturday, November 5, 2016 at the Walt Whitman Birthplace

On Saturday, November 5, The Long Island Woman Suffrage Association meets at the Walt Whitman Birthplace Historic Site in Huntington Station, NY to confer in conference to create momentum and inspiration together as planning ensues for next year’s 100th Anniversary events. I have been invited to speak on Margaret Fuller in New York.

The Margaret Fuller Memorial Tablet and Pavilion were erected at Point O’Woods, Fire Island, in 1901 by Lillie Devereux Blake and the women of the summer colony there. Alas!, in 1913, a terrific storm swept the memorial into the sea near where Margaret Fuller, her husband, and child Angelino were drowned by a hurricane in the shipwreck of the Elizabeth on July 19, 1850.
