Can you handle the truth? The Children's Museum hosts our third annual mock trial event—The Verdict presented by Ice Miller LLP—on Nov. 21. This year's event is virtual and will feature the case U.S. v. Susan B. Anthony. Susan B. Anthony illegally voted in the 1872 presidential election, sparking the discussion about women's right to vote. Join us for court and comedy as we reopen this iconic case in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. 

Corporate ticket packages are also available.



Includes a link to the live, mock trial experience starting at 6:30 p.m. EST. Enter the number of attendees for each option in the box below.

Trial Overview: U.S. v. Susan B. Anthony

In 1872—50 years before the 19th Amendment was ratified—Susan B. Anthony allegedly broke the law and dared to vote. She was indicted, tried, and convicted when the judge ordered the all-male jury to find her guilty. This case of sexual discrimination and constitutional misinterpretation didn't get an unbiased trial the first time, so join us as we travel back almost 150 years. We'll reopen her case and give it the attention it deserved. You the jury will decide—did the 14th Amendment give Susan B. Anthony voting rights, or did she willfully break the law?

Local lawyers, judges, and corporate citizens will serve as our official mock trial participants, representing all sides of the law. Children's Museum actors will represent key witnesses in the case—a courtroom combo sure to keep you entertained!
