|Hereís a story that shows
how Womenís history, Black history, Correction History, and U.S. History
intersect. In Seneca Falls thereís the Wesleyan Chapel begun in 1843 by 39
Baptists when their church didnít cut slavery ties. Soon Presbyterians joined
it after their church expelled Rhoda Bement who challenged their ministerís
not announcing a womenís abolitionist meeting.

Frederick Douglass images are from the National Park Services web
presentation about its Womenís Rights National Historic Park in Seneca Falls.
