Entry Title Date
Executive Session December 15, 2014

"Such a museum will share the stories of pioneering women such as abolitionist Harriet Tubman, the founder of the Girl Scouts, Juliette Gordon Low, Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, astronaut Sally Ride, and my personal inspiration, Maine Senator Margaret Chase Smith."
Celebrating The 25Th Anniversary Of The Civil War Revisited November 19, 2014
Jim Costa, D-CA
"In 2001, the event expanded by adding a school day program called “Time Travelers at the Civil War.” This program allows students to interact with historical figures such as President Lincoln, Clara Barton, Walt Whitman and Harriet Tubman. Additionally, they are able to speak with military re-enactors to learn about life as a part of the war effort, but they are also able to speak to blacksmiths and dressmakers in order to get a glimpse into day to day life in the era."

National Women’S History Month April 4, 2014
Corrine Brown, D-FL
"As we embark on the journey of equal rights for all women, let us acknowledge and be conscious of those remarkable and unforgettable leaders who struggled for equality before us—Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and many more. As we champion this year’s theme, “Celebrating Women of Character, Courage and Commitment,” we reflect on those women, and how they can be an inspiration to us as we continue to push forward for equality. It would be my pleasure to recognize these women from my district who has done outstanding work, your efforts does not go unnoticed and continue to be great. When Women Succeed, America Succeeds."
Ensuring Public Involvement In The Creation Of National Monuments Act March 26, 2014
Donna Edwards, D-MD
"Just last year, there was a significant bipartisan effort on the part of the President and others to designate the Harriet Tubman National Historical Parks Act, of which I am an original cosponsor, but that bill failed to even make it out of the committee—with public support and with family support, failed to make it out of committee. Just yesterday, we celebrated the first anniversary of the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Monument located in my State of Maryland and designated as a national monument by President Obama using his authority under the Antiquities Act."
