June 18, 1873: Susan B. Anthony fined for voting. Five years earlier, the US adopted the 14th Amendment, which gave full citizenship rights to "all persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof." Anthony took it at its word, and voted in the national election. She and 14 other female voters were arrested, along with the officials who allowed them to vote. Anthony was fined $100 plus the cost of the trial. She never paid the fine.
