Before a road trip, I highlight all the women’s history sites on our maps. (I use a variety of sources to identify the sites.) What we visit depends on many things–our timing, relevance (since I’m currently writing about suffrage those sites were #1), distance, etc. The first day we zigzagged off Route 80 to Salem, Ohio, site of the first Women’s Rights Convention in Ohio, held on April 19 and 20, 1850. On the way, we serendipitously discovered another Thanksgiving claim on a sign in front of a shop in Berlin Center, Ohio.
