Abstract:

"On January 24, 1873, Susan B. Anthony was indicted by a grand jury for voting "knowingly, wrongfully, and unlawfully." The subsequent trial, in which Anthony was convicted of breaking the law by casting a vote, became one of the most famous trials of the nineteenth century. This was largely due to Anthony's clever strategem of publishing a one-volume edition of the trial proceedings, then shrewdly using it as a public relations ploy for a campaign to rally women to the cause of women's suffrage.".

"No musty historical document, The Trial of Susan B. Anthony is alive with the drama of an exciting time, when the hard-fought gains that women enjoy today still hung in the balance. This edition of the original volume includes an introduction by Lynn Sherr, ABC News, and author of Failure Is Impossible: Susan B. Anthony in Her Own Words."--BOOK JACKET.
