Short Desription

Almost 100 years after the American Revolution, Abby and Julia Smith were fighting against taxation without representation. Women hadn''t been given the vote, and the Smith sisters refused to pay an unfair property tax that  they had no voice in establishing. When the authorities confiscated their cows, the Smiths bought them back at auction, thus paying what they owed without paying their taxes. The cows were seized at tax time for a number of years, and the Smiths''s stand attracted the attention of women''s suffrage supporters across the country. Lively, carefully researched illustrations bring this historical episode vividly to life. Authors'' note, bibliography.
