Clinton Co Suffragist Inez Milholland Talk

inez milhollandClinton County Historical Association Director Helen Allen Nerska is set to give a presentation on suffragist Inez Milholland, Tuesday, February 18th.

Inez Milholland, buried in Lewis, New York, was a nationally respected suffragist who eventually gave her life in the movement. In 1912, Milholland spoke in Plattsburgh. Her father and sister also worked to help persuade Clinton County voters to approve a 1917 change to the New York State Constitution that allowed women to vote.

Milholland may be best known however, for leading the 1913 Washington, DC, Suffrage parade on a white horse, but there is much more to her activism and support of the suffragist movement.

This event, free and open to the public, will be introduced with the 15-minute video “Forward Into the Light” beginning at 6:30 pm, at the Lake Forest Senior Living Community Center, located at 8 Lake Forest Drive, Plattsburgh. For more information, visit the Clinton County Historical Association website, or call (518) 561-0340.
