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