Who was the Senator who changed his vote after receiving a message from his mother, and what did it say?
I found the article below at the website for the Chicago Tribune.
A Mother's Prodding Led to Women's Right to vote
Harry T. Burn was opposed to the suffrage movement, but then his mom told him to 'be a good boy.'
by Andrew Malcolm and Ashley Powers ~ August 22, 2010
The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
Last week marked the 90th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, the one that gave women the right to vote after a full century of organization, agitation and marching. On Aug. 18, 1920, the Tennessee General Assembly became the 36th state to ratify the amendment, thus making it official.
Few folks remember, however, that the historic ratification occurred by just one single vote — a man's, of course, in those days. It was Harry T. Burn, a lawyer and later a banker. He had settled on his opposition to this suffrage nonsense. The General Assembly suffrage amendment vote came up a 48-48 tie. Burn's vote would defeat it and postpone national ratification at least another month until the Connecticut Legislature vote. But shortly before the historic legislative tally, Burn received a long letter from his mother back home in Niota. She said, in part:
"I have been watching to see how you stood, but have not noticed anything yet. Don't forget to be a good boy."
Burn behaved himself. He changed his "nay" vote to "yea."
The rest has become history.
Harry T. Burn's Biography from Tennessee states that he was for the women receiving the right to vote, however he was voting on the majority of men from his area. Mr. Burn's mother sent a message, and he carried the message from his mother in his jacket pocket. When it was his turn to vote he pulled it out and finally voted from his heart and as his mother requested. The movie condensed the scene by having the messenger deliver the message from his mother during the voting.
Colors chosen by Alice Paul for the banners were Purple, White and Gold.
Purple - Loyalty and Courage
White - Purity
Gold - Enlightenment
Green - Renewal and Hope Green was used by the British suffragettes along with purple and white.
Yellow - Started in the Kansas women's group because of the state flower - the Sunflower.
