This show continues our conversation with Dr. Caroline Sparks who, after encountering Adelaide Johnson's Portrait Monument to Lucretia Mott, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton in the Crypt of the U.S. Capitol in 1978, resolved to return it to its more elevated position in the Rotunda, a space for which it was designed. As we discussed last time, Caroline's goal was to raise the statue in 1995, to mark the 75th anniversary of the 19th Amendment. While 1995 was an important year for the statue due to the fact that the U.S. Congress became involved in moving the statue, a number of obstacles prevented the statue from returning to the Rotunda in 1995. It was not until Mother's Day in 1997 that the Suffragist statue was finally moved. In this show, we discuss Caroline Sparks' involvement in the events from 1995-1997 which culminated in the statue returning to the Rotunda.
