Spotlight on politics – Pennyroyal Players “From Battles to Ballots”

The audience at The Warner Grand Annex.

The story begins in 1591 in England, and ends in Tennessee in 1920 with the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which opened the doors for women to cast their vote in the United States.
