This Day in History: 1893 – With the signing of  the Electoral Bill by Governor Lord Glasgow, New Zealand becomes the first country in the world to grant national voting rights to women.

Fact of the Day:  Passed by Congress in 1919, and ratified in 1920, the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution granted women the right to vote in the United States.

Strange, but True:  Edith Wilson was President Wilson’s wife, and his most important ally.  When President Wilson was campaigning for the United States to join the League of Nations, he suffered a stroke which left him bedridden.  Edith Wilson spent the next year and a half hiding the extent of her husband’s incapacity while basically acting as President when papers and matters came before her.
