Women Suffrage & Women's Rights

In recent decades, the woman suffrage movement has taken on new significance for women’s history. Ellen Carol DuBois has been a central figure in spurring renewed interest in woman suffrage and in realigning the debates which surround it. This volume gathers DuBois’ most influential articles on woman suffrage and includes two new essays. The collection traces the trajectory of the suffrage story against the backdrop of changing attitudes to politics, citizenship and gender, and the resultant tensions over such issues as slavery and abolitionism, sexuality and religion, and class and politics. Connecting the essays is DuBois’ belief in the continuing importance of political and reform movements as an object of historical inquiry and a force in shaping gender.

The Vietnam War.

12 Gifts of Christmas come from our Gift Shop at the Historical Society, Becker Mansion. Gift Shop is open from 9-4 pm Monday-Friday.

The New York Times Bestseller****The book of the landmark documentary, The Vietnam War, by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick**The definitive work on the Vietnam War, the conflict that came to define a generation, told from all sides by those who were there. More than forty years after the Vietnam War ended, its legacy continues to fascinate, horrify and inform us. As the first war to be fought in front of TV cameras and beamed around the world, it has been immortalized on film and on the page, and forever changed the way we think about war. Drawing on hundreds of brand-new interviews, Ken Burns and Geoffrey C. Ward have created the definitive work on Vietnam. It is the first book to show us the war from every perspective- from idealistic US Marines and the families they left behind to the Vietnamese civilians, both North and South, whose homeland was changed forever; politicians, POWs and anti-war protesters; and the photographers and journalists who risked their lives to tell the truth.

Seneca Army Depot.

Even before the attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States began to prepare to enter World War II. When the army decided to build a depot in Seneca County in 1941, dozens of families were given only days to vacate the homes they loved and land they had farmed for generations. The depot provided vital jobs for residents, but it also continued to cause controversy even after it was established–all while providing critical support for the army through the Persian Gulf War. Since the base closed in 2000, the community has grappled with what to do with the property, including protecting the area population of white deer. Join local historians Carolyn Zogg and Walter Gable as they tell the story of the Seneca Army Depot and the lives it has affected.

The Flats – Probably nobody knew as much about the FLATS as Arnold Barben did. True, he never saw them; they had given way to the deep waters of Van Cleef Lake almost a dozen years before he came to live in Seneca Falls. But two of his special interests- local history and industrial development-had evolved in that riverside area, which led him to study and record the story. The cradle of Seneca Falls village was an area known as the “Flats”, now below the surface of placid Van Cleef Lake. Here were located the two lower landing places of the portage around the mile-long rapids constituting the forty-two-foot drop in the Seneca River, and then known as “the” Seneca Falls.

Images of Seneca Falls & The Flats

Images of Seneca Falls – A village located along the Seneca River, Seneca Falls was incorporated in 1831 and was soon linked to the Erie Canal by the Cayuga Seneca Canal. The women’s suffrage movement was born in Seneca Falls when the first Women’s Rights Convention, led by Elizabeth Cady Stanton, was held on July 19 and 20, 1848. Seneca County and Seneca Falls were also part of the Underground Railroad, and prominent citizens such as Ansel Bascom and Henry Seymour worked with freedom seekers in the decades before the Civil War. The town’s knitting mills produced socks for the army during the war, second only to New York City in production. Many famous people also came to Seneca Falls to rally around the town’s causes, among them are Lucretia Mott, Frederick Douglass, Garrett Smith, and Susan B. Anthony.

Both books would normally cost $29.99 but this perfect Christmas Gift has been reduced to only $20.00.
