Grand jury indicts Anthony for voting

Jan 1873

A grand jury indicts Anthony for voting. She is released on bail and tours the area around Rochester delivering speeches:

It was we, the people; not we, the white male citizens; nor yet we, the male citizens; but we, the whole people, who formed the Union. And it is a downright mockery to talk to women of their enjoyment of the blessings of liberty while they are denied the use of the only means of securing them provided by this democratic-republican government — the ballot.
