Miltary Miniatures Warehouse - new release

    Greetings,

    Here's a new release that's a little different:

    "Iron Jawed Angels" Women's Suffrage Movement, Washington DC, August 1918.
    Alice Paul & Lucy Burns 54-mm scale resin kit, figures sculpted by Stephen Malia, box art by Ric Fenner. Kit includes two figures, black wrought iron fence, brick wall, scenic base, paper fliers (as shown in Alice Paul's left hand & discarded on base), and three signs (including National Women's Party "colors" banner shown on right). Note that clothing on both women represents World War I-era fashion, meticulously researched (and brilliantly sculpted!) to insure historical accuracy. Scene depicts both women outside the White House in Washington DC. Brick wall & fence modeled after the White House enclosure where the women actually picketed President Woodrow Wilson in 1918 (and were subsequently arrested!) The "Kaiser" Wilson sign enraged many & led to one of the women's many arrests & incarceration, as it hit on a sign of the times as the US declared war on Germany. The young suffragists conducted a hunger strike while in jail, and were force-fed with the use of iron jawed-clamps, hence earning their nick-name. Late 20th century studies of the passage of the amendment granting American women the right to vote gives more credit to these young ladies in getting the law ratified.

    For additional photos, kit description, and historical background please visit our web site.
