This is the July 30, 1868 issue of "The Revolution," a short-lived newspaper on suffrage and women's rights that was the joint effort of Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. The masthead features a quotation from George Francis Train, the eccentric who bankrolled the venture ("Principle, Not Policy-Justice, Not Favors-Men, Their Rights and Nothing More: Women, Their Rights and Nothing Less.") This particular issue features a lengthy essay by Stanton, several calls for a third party that would favor women's rights, a Temperance lecture by Train, a denunciation of Ulysses S. Grant's presidential bid, etc. The back contains several ads for such items as "Woman Suffrage Tracts," spiritualist books, women artists, Henry Stanton Law Offices (Elizabeth Cady Stanton's husband).
