Join historian Mark Albertson for a talk on how the passing of the 19th Amendment has impacted the United States in the past and today. It was a tremendous struggle politically and socially to advance the concept of women voting to the wider indifferent society. Mark  will tell of the women and men who led the movement and of the countless demonstrations, marches, and sacrifices to advance toward a nationwide ratification to the Constitution to allow women to vote in all elections.

 

Mark Albertson is the historical research editor at Army Aviation magazine in Monroe, CT as well as the historian for the Army Aviation Association of America.  He has published several books and is presently at work on a two-volume history of Army Aviation, Sky Soldiers:The Saga of Army Aviation, to which volume 1 is completed.

 

In addition, Mark teaches history as an adjunct at Norwalk Community College Extended Studies Program and for the Lifetime Learners Institute.  As an avid speaker, Mark travels throughout Connecticut and New York, presenting on topics of history, politics  and current events.  In May 2005, Mark was presented with a General Assembly Citation by both houses of the state legislature in Hartford for his efforts in commemorating the centennial of battleship Connecticut.
