  95th Anniversary of passage of 19th Amendment. The 95th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution will be celebrated on August 26. It gave women the right to vote in the United States. By March of 1920, 35 states had voted to ratify the amendment, one state shy of the needed number. 23-year-old Representative Harry T. Burn (1895-1977), a Republican from McMinn County, cast the deciding vote in the Tennessee legislature after his mother convinced him to approve it...With Burn's vote, the 19th Amendment was ratified. Certification by U.S. Secretary of State Bainbridge Colby (1869-1950) followed on August 26, 1920. Ratification by the remaining states took 64 years. Retrieved from http://www.history.com/topics/womens-history/19th-Amendment, July 24, 2015.
