Happy Birthday,
Lucretia Mott!

The famed Feminist & Abolitionist is at rest at Fair Hill Burial Ground.   

Yes, Lucretia would be 225 years old today, January 3, 2018.

And who was Jane Johnson, and why was she racing down Philadelphia streets in a coach with Lucretia Mott in September of 1855? And why were federal marshals trying to catch them??

Read on to find out, in our blogpost. Our friend Chuck Fager provided some useful reading [links] there as well.

Check out Chuck's blog, A Friendly Letter, for a follow-up to this story, and a wonderful birthday tribute!
