After reading a letter from his mother, Febb Burn, Harry T. Burn cast the deciding vote to ratify the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, granting suffrage rights to millions of American women. Born and raised in McMinn County, he served in Tennessee government in various capacities for many years, including terms in the state senate and as delegate to state constitutional conventions. Now, a hundred years later, Burn’s great-grandnephew gives us a deeper appreciation of the life and work of the statesmen. As the state commemorates the centennial of the 19th Amendment passing in Tennessee, join the museum for a vibrant discussion about the book and a tour of their women’s suffrage exhibit.
RSVP throught Eventbrite to let them know you’ll be attending one of the discussions.
