MEDIA ALERT: BUNKER HILL MONUMENT ILLUMINATION -100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE 19TH AMENDMENT – AUGUST 26th


On Wednesday, August 26, 2020, at 7:27 p.m., the National Parks of Boston will be illuminating the Bunker Hill Monument in suffrage purple and gold for two hours in honor of the passing of the 19th Amendment. This is part of a nationwide initiative (https://www.womensvote100.org/forwardintolight) to light up structures and social media in American communities with suffrage colors. Purple signifies unswerving steadfastness to the cause. Gold signifies “the color of light and life, is as the torch that guides our purpose, pure and unswerving.” Gold was adopted by the suffrage movement during the Kansas campaign in 1867.
