Elizabeth Cady Stanton

21d ECS, Robert, MargaretsmallHappy Birthday to Elizabeth Cady Stanton, born today–Nov. 12–in 1815 in Johnstown, NY!!! On the day of her birthday in 1880, she began keeping a diary: “My philosophy,” she noted, “is to live one day at a time, neither to waste my force in apprehension of evils to come, nor regrets for the blunders of the past.” The image, which I included in my book, is ECS  with her daughter Margaret and son Robert at the gala celebration for her 80th birthday.
