He spent 15 years in prison.

1916 - When she was 29 years old, suffragette Jeannette Pickering Rankin became the first woman elected to the House of Representatives as a Representative at large from Montana.

Montana had granted women unrestricted voting rights in 1914, 6 years before women got the vote nationally.
