At her request, much of the ceremonial mourning of the day was not observed: no shades were drawn, no black crepe hung. Only a simple wreath of violets was placed on the front door.
The National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House will observe the 108th anniversary of Susan B. Anthony’s death on Thursday, March 13, 2014 with the hanging of a simple wreath of violets on the front door of #17 Madison Street at 11:00 a.m.
The wreath-hanging will be followed by a short presentation about Anthony’s life and legacy by Anthony House president and CEO, Deborah L. Hughes. The public is invited to attend.
