Annotation: This article is one of a set that compares how the two best known Kentucky suffragists, Madeline McDowell Breckinridge and Laura Clay, each responded to the Nineteenth Amendment. Breckinridge supported its passage, hence the title “Suffragist Triumphant.” When read together, and introduced by a short essay co-written by Paul E. Fuller and Melba Porter Hay, these articles provide an interesting contradiction of how two people working for the same goal, woman suffrage, could feel so differently.
