Lippitt Lab: Politics in the 19th Century

Think today’s political landscape is contentious? Travel back to the Victorian era and learn about the 1876 presidential election – perhaps the most controversial of all time – and why the man who won the most electoral votes did not become President. Find out about the first woman to run for President – nearly 150 years before Hillary Clinton – and how her campaign drew attention to the suffragette cause. Learn about Rhode Island politics and the role the Lippitts played in the state
