The Procession

Lotty and Isaiah’s journey through time drops them in 1913, at the Woman Suffrage Procession in Washington, D.C. They find a now elderly Florence, still waiting for the day when her right to vote is protected by the constitution. The kids come up with an out-of-this-time idea: What if they take “Granny Flo” with them?
