I love the first wave protestors... I would like to add that this was in direct response to previous feminists who were working with the Democrats, who repeatedly stopped legislation that would allow women to vote. Republicans voted through the 19th A as their Dem counterparts screamed in hysterical protest.

Susan B Anthony was arrested by a U.S. Deputy Marshal for voting on November 5 in the 1872 Presidential Election two weeks earlier. She had written to Stanton on the night of the election that she had "positively voted the Republican ticket—straight...". She was tried and convicted seven months later. The sentence was a $100 fine, but not imprisonment; true to her word in court ("I shall never pay a dollar of your unjust penalty"), she never paid the fine for the rest of her life.
