Ratification of the 19th Amendment
by Courtney C Horne @FireezDragon
So the fact that Mississippi just ratified the 13th amendment has been all over the news recently. I was looking up some stuff about the 19th amendment (women’s suffrage!) because on the 100th anniversary of ratification I think there should be a bunch of events and I am going to start pestering people now, seven years in advance.
In the course of looking it up I came across the dates that some of our states finally bothered to ratify it. And it’s pathetic.
South Carolina 1969
North Carolina 1971
and… Mississippi 1984
