Newspapers – A Window into the Past (Part 4)

We have now reached December 18, 1941 in our trip to the past. It was an historic month. The Japanese had bombed Pearl Harbor just eleven days before and the United States was at war.

As the nation this year celebrates the centennial anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, the Constitutional Amendment granting United States women the right to vote, Brooksville Main Street and The Hernando Sun are marking the milestone with the Women Leading the Way Women's Suffrage Event/Exhibition March 20-21. And in addition to honoring the brave suffragists who put their lives on the line to secure a basic human right, this event will honor the visionary women of Hernando County.
