In 1913, the suffragist "Army of the Hudson" marched the 225 miles from Newark, New Jersey to Washington D.C. in 16 days for a March 3rd parade march to coincide with the inauguration of newly-elected U.S. President, Woodrow Wilson. Seven years later, on August 18, 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment (Amendment XIX) to the USA's Constitution was ratified, prohibiting any U.S. citizen from being denied the right to vote based upon sex.
