For a brief time, New Jersey women were allowed to vote — long before the suffrage movement

Before the peak of the women’s suffrage movement and the passing of the 19th Amendment in the early 1900s, New Jersey had already granted some women the right to vote in the late 1700s. The little-known, brief law in the Garden State marks the foundation for what would become a greater fight for w...

Turning Point 1777

The May 30, 1778 Battle of Cobus Kill was a harbinger of things to come on New York's western frontier during the American Revolution. Mohawk War Captain Joseph Brant won a resounding tactical and psychological victory here that made a lasting impression on the inhabitants of the region and state. Get immersed in a Revolutionary War battle that was fought between Americans with one shared goal: to live the way they saw fit under governance of their own choosing. Please follow state guidelines for wearing face coverings to ensure a low-risk experience.

The Schoharie Chapter flagged Veteran graves at the Old Stone Fort Cemetery today. Covid restrictions really impacted the photographs. Masks pretty much stayed on because people came and went, and it was just easier to keep them in place. Thank you to Mark Wood, caretaker of Old Stone Fort Cemetery, and Schoharie County American Legion for providing some of the flags for today.

This message is for our Chapter members. At this time all of our scheduled events and meetings have been canceled for the forseeable future. We are looking into the possibility of having meetings via Zoom or conferencecall.com or some other platform. There are a few items of business that need to be completed over the next month or so, and we will do our best to get the work done within the restrictions on electronic gatherings as noted in our bylaws.

DAR President General

Daughters of the American Revolution: I want to thank all of you who are following directives to stay at home in order to physically distance yourselves. This is a new type of patriotic duty but a patriotic duty nonetheless. I certainly also want to express my appreciation to every member and American who is continuing to serve in order that the rest of us are sustained.

The important mission of DAR must continue, and it will because we carry it in our hearts no matter what we are doing or where we are. I am so grateful for the resilience and positive attitude that so many of you have shown. With this post, I am asking chapters that, if possible, to please check by phone on their most vulnerable members, who may be shut-ins already. Let’s be kind to one another and set a good example of patriotic duty evidenced by compassion and concern.

Meanwhile, our Service to America Committee page continues to share wonderful ideas how you might consider completing community service from home. Now is also a good time to think about watching some of the webinars on our DAR Leadership Training Committee webpage and/or taking our Member or New Horizon courses. I would also be grateful if you used this time to attract at least one new member to DAR – a positive legacy from this situation.

It is my personal hope that if we all follow recommendations that life will begin to return to normal within the weeks ahead. Spring is coming across our land, and that renews my own optimism and hope.

I hope that you will join me in praying for our nation and for our neighbors during this difficult situation – we all need a little sunshine.

About International Women's Day

Happy International Women's Day!!!

"International Women's Day (IWD) has been observed since the early 1900's - a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies."

https://www.internationalwomensday.com/About

The first International Women's Day was in 1911. In 1975 the United Nations started to celebrate IWD. Groups across the world support IWD each year on March 8
