Women's History

Hi, Can anyone help me locate information on the National Woman's Party and the train they took across the country to rally enough delegates to pass the 19th amendment? Women involved were Alice Paul and Lucy Burns. I believe Lucy Burns actually rode the train--an ingenius political retaliation against the White House--dressed in prison garb and rode the "Prison Special." I have searched everywhere for detailed information on this subject and have come up with no more than a mention of the event. Can you help me? Thank you for your assistance.

To learn more about the National Woman's Party you can pick up almost any 'women's history' book. Specifically, you should look at a book entitled Women in Struggle. You should also look specifically under "Alice Paul and Lucy Burns" for information. I have read a lot on this subject, unfortunately, I can't remember exactly where. Any library search will surely pull up information. Also you should contact both the National Women's History Project and the National Women's Hall of Fame in Seneca Falls, NY at 315-568-8060. Good luck.
Amy
