Rochester, New York: Susan B. Anthony grave draws huge crowds Tuesday [View all]

Happens every election year:



This year drew special attention from CNN causing a massive turnout where hundreds lined up following polls opening this morning...

"By 12 noon, about 1,500 people, a large majority of them women and girls, had made it to the Anthony family plot. Five hundred more stood in line, willing to endure a wait of an hour or more for the chance to approach the simple burial site that has become a shrine to women's rights."
