In July 1848, more than 300 men and women assembled in Seneca Falls, New York, for the nation's first women's rights convention. The “Signatures to the Declaration of Sentiments” is a document signed by 100 of the attendees (68 women and 32 men) of the convention. Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the principal author of the document, owned this copy of the document. Emendations by Stanton’s daughter, Harriot Stanton Blatch, are visible on the document.
