I'm back home in Rochester this week, and it seemed like an appropriate time to pop in and say hello to one of Rochester's most famous residents, Susan B. Anthony, who is buried in Rochester's Mt. Hope cemetery.
On this day in 1872, Susan was arrested for casting a ballot in the presidential election, which women were prohibited from doing.
On election day, New York voters will descend here to leave their "I Voted" stickers on her gravestone. New York doesn't have early voting; the few stickers on the grave this weekend were from out-of-towners.
While I was there, a family with two young children stopped by. They said they had driven all the way from Georgia to place their Georgia voter stickers on the grave. I loved it that these little kids will grow up knowing who this incredible woman was.
This brave and gutsy woman devoted her life to changing ours. Now go vote, everyone!
