On February 12, 1913, 16 women left New York City to walk to Washington, DC, and their numbers grew to more than 5,000 by the time they reached Pennsylvania Avenue the day before the inauguration of President Woodrow Wilson. Their journey led them through Overlea in Baltimore County on February 22nd and the Women’s Caucus chose the same day to commemorate the march’s progress through Maryland.
