Hitch a ride on the "Spirit of 1776." Spread the word about my dream!

I have a dream. The dream is that my grandmother Edna's suffrage campaign wagon will be placed on permanent exhibit at the New York State Museum in Albany, NY. And that the edited film about my grandmother and the suffrage movement will play on a monitor next to the wagon.

An unrealistic dream? I don't think so.

Find out more about my dream. And then take a little over two minutes to listen to me tell you about the film project, "The Spirit of 1776," in this brief clip available on this page. 

Your interest and support will allow me to stand tall on the shoulders of courageous, determined women whose insistence on winning the right to vote carried forward the ideals of this country's founders. 

Kickstart this personal storytelling. It will help spread the word, and in the process the suffrage movement can become better known through music, photos, audio, and video. 

Make sure that an important part of our nation's history isn't forgotten.

Strength with courage,

Marguerite Kearns
