MS-147: Martha McClellan Brown Papers
William Kennedy Brown describes Martha McClellan Brown’s initial attempts to organize the Women’s Christian Temperance Union and the subsequent founding and growth of that organization. He argues that the history of women’s suffrage is defined more by the Christian women of the temperance movement and their demand for the vote than by the work of religious skeptics such as Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
