The year 2020 marks major milestones in American and local history, including the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment and the 400th anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower. The way we choose to interpret and commemorate such significant historical events—as well as the people impacted by them—can provide valuable insights into contemporary society.
