"I would not have expected that I, who am barely out of savagery, would have to remind gentlemen with 5,000 years of recorded civilization behind them, of our Bill of Rights."

Elizabeth Peratrovich portrayed as Rosie the Riveter with famous quote in bubble and the State seal with HB77 and other pickets behind her.

The Sheldon Jackson Museum will host a special youth event at 10am on Sat., Feb. 16th in honor of Elizabeth Peratrovich Day. At the event, children of all ages will have a chance to look at images, including prints of paintings and photographs of Elizabeth Peratrovich and make their own Elizabeth Peratrovich portrait using colored pencils and crayons.

The event is free of charge and will take place in the lobby area of the museum. To register your child, call (907) 747-8981.
