July 4, 1856, Lucy Stone 
"Morning Star of the Woman's
Rights movement" delivered
the first woman's rights addr- (sic)
ess and anti slavery speech
ever given by a woman in the
great northwest. The platform
broke down. Rising unhurt she
cried "So will this nation fall
unless slavery is abolished."
"The world for women has been
revolutionized largely thru
the efforts of Lucy Stone and
her co-workers."
