Ontario County historian Preston Pierce will present “2017: A Double Centennial Year” at 2:30 p.m. Jan. 26 at Legacy at Fairways, 681 High St., Victor.

New York was key to the national women’s suffrage movement when it became one of the first states to amend its constitution to allow women to vote in 1917.

In April 1917, President Woodrow Wilson went before a joint session of U.S. Congress to request a declaration of war against Germany. The U.S. Senate voted in support of the measure, and the U.S. House of Representative concurred.

Pierce will discuss the combined centennials and the impact on New York and the U.S.

Registration is requested for the free presentation.
