The Trial of Susan B. Anthony

On my recent trip to Rochester, NY, I timed my drive so that I could visit the Ontario County Court House in Canandaigua, NY, where the trial of Susan B. Anthony for voting unlawfully was held in 1873. David Flynn, a knowledgeable security guard who regaled me with stories of reenactments of SBA’s trial, offered to accompany me so that I could get in with my camera. A bust of SBA with the plaque–“JUSTICE DENIED HERE, June 1873–is outside the courtroom.  David took the photo of me. (Yes, that’s a painting of a reenactment above the bust.) I took the photos of the portrait of SBA on the courtroom wall, the courtroom, and the Ontario County Court House.  A popular local legend claims that the arm 

of “Justice” fell to the ground on the day of sentencing.
