which Hillary Clinton stepped up as the first female politician who has
ever had a legitimate shot at the U.S. presidency, history buffs may
opt to remember the history of women’s suffrage at the Matilda Joslyn Gage Home,
210 E. Genesee St., Fayetteville. The Cicero-born, Fayetteville-bred
women’s rights activist is known for her collaboration with Susan B.
Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton in forming the National Woman
Suffrage Association in 1869 among other suffrage groups, as well as
for fighting for the abolition of slavery and the necessary separation
of church and state. Visitors can take a tour of Fayetteville and its
cemetery with guide Sue Boland, who will explain historically
relevant information on Saturday, July 5, 9 a.m., and Sunday, July 6, 4
p.m., beginning at the Gage offices, 109 Walnut St., Fayetteville.
Admission to the walks is $5 for adults, $3 for children ages 12 and
younger and seniors. For more information, call 637-6511.
