Join the Suffrage Cause!

The Mourning Society of St Louis is participating in To Ask For Freedom: The Fight for Women’s Suffrage on Saturday July 1 at 10AM at Bellefontaine Cemetery!

We are looking for like-minded ladies and gentleman who would like to dress in 1917 attire and march with us to celebrate 100 years of the Women’s Suffrage Movement and the Suffragists of Bellefontaine Cemetery.

It is astonishingly easy to put together a 1917 style outfit from things found in vintage shops, thrift stores or even items you may already have in your closet! This is also a great way to get started if you are interested in historic clothing and reenacting without making a big investment.



This is the first of what we hope will be a series of Women’s Suffrage events culminating in a Centennial Celebration of the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 2020.

To register for this event as a participant and find out more about putting together a 1917 ensemble please Contact Us.
