Description

Achieving Beulah Land - The Long Struggle for Suffrage in Tompkins County, New York by Carol Kammen and Elaine D. Engst - pub. Cornell University Library 2019 In the late 19th century, women in New York State used the Biblical Beulah Land as a metaphor for their quest to “perfect” American democracy so that all citizens would be equally represented and equal before the law. In Achieving Beulah Land, Tompkins County Historian Carol Kammen and Cornell University Archivist Emerita Elaine Engst show how the people of Tompkins County contributed to the this goal. Over 150 pages the democratic journey is explored locally through the story of the suffrage movement here – how this major issue played out on our streets, in our newspapers, in journals and letters, and in people’s lives as it unfolded in Tompkins County and at Cornell – and what they learned during the trip.
