The Ballot Box Battle

The Ballot Box Battle

by Emily Arnold McCully Illustrated by Emily Arnold McCully
In Tenafly, New Jersey, in 1880, a young girl named Cordelia isn't interested in hearing her neighbor's stories about the fight for women's suffrage. But on election day, Cordelia prompts Mrs. Stanton to tell the heart wrenching story of her own childhood, and how it steeled her for the battles of her adult life. What happens when Cordelia and Elizabeth Cady Stanton decide to go to the polls is a turning point for Cordelia, and an inspiration to children everywhere.
