Susan B. Anthony Had “Many Things To Say”

Judge Ward Hunt refused to allow Susan B. Anthony to testify because she was “not a competent witness.” He preempted the jurors’ role by ordering them to “find a verdict of guilty.” He refused her lawyer’s request for a new trial. So, no wonder, when Hunt asked SBA if she had anything to say before he pronounced her sentence, she declared: “Yes, your honor, I have many things to say.” Here is a link to what she said.  http://ecssba.rutgers.edu/docs/sbatrial.html
