Description

Brief update on the progress of "General" Rosalie Jones and her "army" of suffrage hikers from Manhattan to Albany, New York to present suffrage petitions to Governor-Elect William Sulzer and draw publicity to the cause.

Rosalie Jones was a member of the National American Woman Suffrage Association who led a group of NAWSA members on a suffrage pilgrimage from Manhattan to Albany, New York. The "pilgrims" presented the petition to Governor-elect Sulzer three days after they arrived in Albany.

Two months later, Jones organized another pilgrimage from New York City to Washington, D.C. for the March 3, 1913 suffrage parade.
