The Voice That Won The Vote: How One Woman's Words Made History

In August of 1920, women's suffrage in America came down to the vote in Tennessee. If the Tennessee legislature approved the 19th Amendment it would be ratified, giving all American women the right to vote. If it didn't, the suffragists would have yet more battles to fight.

The historic moment came down to a single vote, and the voter who tipped the scale toward equality did so, even though he had previously supported the opposition because of a powerful letter his mother had written him. Febb Burns was determined to be allowed to vote, and her letter urging her son Harry to "Vote for suffrage and don't forget to be a good boy" tipped the scales of history. The Voice That Won the Vote is the story of Febb, her son Harry, and the letter than gave all American women a voice.
