Stanton, Anthony & Mott. A Protestant & Two Quakers. Women's Suffrage Centennial

These three Pioneers of the Women's Rights Movement began their career of Political Activism by way of Abolition., a fact that has earned them their spot in American History.

Religion & Politics have always been very closely intertwined.

I didn't clearly articulate that this painting of George Washington is actually located in the Capitol Rotunda to this day.

I was more concerned with pointing out that Christianity isn't the only Religion practiced in the US today & that Muslims are currently in the middle of their Hajj.

Painted in 1865 by Constantino Brumidi, the Apotheosis of Washington in the eye of the U.S. Capitol Building's Rotunda depicts George Washington rising to the heavens in glory, flanked by female figures representing Liberty and Victory/Fame and surrounded by six groups of figures. The fresco is suspended 180 feet above the Rotunda floor and covers an area of 4,664 square feet.

At the time all of these Reformation measures were taking place, the Second Great Awakening In Religious thought was underway, in a drastic change from the "Hell, Fire & Brimstone" that was present in our newly formed Republic, so it seemed natural to people living in this era that George Washington would have himself depicted as an Angel.

The history of our Capitol's Architecture is a fascinating glimpse into today's events currently happening.

2020 is the 100th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment that FINALLY granted WOMEN the Right to Vote. It's kind of a big deal.

Here is a bit of background on the Capitol Monument to honor Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B Anthony & Lucretia Mott:

The monument was presented to the U.S. Capitol as a gift from the women of the United States by the National Woman's Party and was accepted on behalf of Congress by the Joint Committee on the Library on February 10, 1921.

The unveiling ceremony was held in the Capitol Rotunda on February 15, 1921, the 101st anniversary of the birth of Susan B. Anthony, and was attended by representatives of over 70 women's organizations. The Committee authorized the installation of the monument in the Crypt, where it remained on continuous display. In accordance with House Concurrent Resolution 216, which was passed by the Congress in September 1996, the sculpture was relocated to the Rotunda in May 1997.
