Clipping : "'General Rosalie Jones Leads 'Army' against anti-suffrage foe while waiting for Sulzer's arrival at Albany." [December 31, 1912]

Description

Article on the progress of "General" Rosalie Jones' efforts to deliver a woman suffrage petition to Governor-elect William Sulzer in Albany, New York. The article mentions the Governor had not yet arrived in Albany and the suffragists were waiting until he arrived to deliver the message.

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.
