Harriet Taylor Upton's Wedding
After spending her formative years in Warren, Ohio, Harriet Taylor Upton moved to Washington, D.C. where she assisted her father's work in the United States Congress and became involved in politics. While she was in Washington, D.C., she also met her mentor Susan B. Anthony and her husband George Whitman Upton. Harriet Taylor Upton and George Upton were married on July 9, 1884.
In 2002, the Upton Association commemorated the anniversary of Harriet's marriage to George by re-enacting their ceremony. In this article, Sandy Sarsany recalls the Upton Association's preparation for the event and describes the details of the ceremony. Sandy is the curator for the Upton Association.
