The Schuster Institute Investigations, the micro site of the Schuster Institute for Investigative Reporting, where I serve as a senior fellow, has posted a handsome page with an exclusive excerpt from The Suffragents about the suffrage referendum victory in New York State on November 6, 1917. Talk about the wrong side of history: Note the reaction in the “anti” New York Times, which did not “even pretend to rejoice.”
The Suffragents won the Gold Medal in US History in the 2018 Independent Publisher Book Awards competition.
