This Day in History: 1877-09-04

Mrs. Lucy Stone and Mr. H. B. Blackwell of Boston address the people of Pueblo on the topic of women’s suffrage.  According to the extremely biased Colorado Daily Chieftain:

“Mrs. Lucy Stone and Mr. J. B. Blackwell lectured on female suffrage in Chilcott’s Hall last night. A good audience attended, but we fear motives of curiosity prompted most of those present, and but few converts were made.”

The quote can be found in the Colorado Daily Chieftain, Volume 7, Number 1648, September 5, 1877 available at
