Valentines and Votes

We all know it's Valentine's Day. But do we all know that it was on February 14th, 1920, that the League of Women Voters was born? The National American Woman Suffrage Association was meeting in Chicago and created the League because the ratification of the 19th amendment was a scarce few months away. They couldn't wait! So roses are red, on violets I dote, but what I really want is the right to vote.

Chase's Calendar of Events is the source of this information. Pick any day and you can discover when and why it's important.
