her culminated in Syracuse,1 When she
was egged, and burned in effigy. Her
life for the past few years had been
in strong contrast to these stormy
times. She lived with her sister, Miss
Horn of Quaker I'n renin.
Miss Anthony was born at South
Adams, Mass., Feb. 15, 1820, of Quaker
parents. There were three girls and
two boys in the Anthony- family, the
boys being the younger. Susan was
a precocious child, and her early
schooling was received in a'' country
school maintained by her father for
his own and neighboring children.
Miss Anthony, resolved to become a
school teacher, attended Friends'
Boarding school at West Philadelphia
during the term of 1837-38, and until
1S50 she taught in various small
schools. The suffrage agitation, which
gained its first impetus about. 1S48,
won her support, and to this work she
devoted her life. v

In 1852 Miss 'Anthony aided in or

After the conflict, Miss Anthony de
voted herself exclusively to the cause

founded The Revolution, a journal de

following year, she organized the Na

of which she became president and lat

In 1872 she was arrested in Chicago
and tried for voting under the Four
teenth amendment. She. was convicted
by a jury and fined.
