Hard One, Not Done


A commemoration of the 100-Year Anniversary of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment from an Iowa Perspective


Two replicas of the 19th Amendment Suffrage Wagon, used by Lucy Stone during the 1913-1920 time period for rallies to support women’s right to vote and housed at the USA Smithsonian National Museum of American History, are available for public usage.  One replica has been retrofitted for city, county and Iowa State Fair parade usage and the other replica is for display purposes at libraries, schools, art museums, history museums and businesses. The replica wagons are 8’ L x 5’ W x 9’ H and made of wood.
