Anthony, Susan Brownell, 1820- American reformer; born in South Adams, Mass., Feb. 15, 1820. She was of Quaker parent-age, and received her education at a Friends' school in Philadelphia. From 1835 to 1850 she taught school in New York. In 1847 she began her efforts in behalf of the temperance movement, making speeches and organizing societies; in 1852 she assisted in organizing the Woman's New York State Temperance Society. In 1854-55 she held conventions in each county in New York in behalf of female suffrage. She was a leader in the anti-slavery movement, and one of the earliest advocates of the coeducation of women.

From Fort Montgomery, on the northern side of the stream, to Anthony's Nose, opposite, the Americans had stretched a boom and chain across the river to prevent the passage of hostile vessels up that stream. Forts Clinton and Montgomery were under the immediate command of Gov. George Clinton, and his brother Gen. James Clinton. Tories had informed Sir Henry Clinton of the weakness of the garrisons, and as soon as expected reinforcements from Europe had arrived, he prepared transports to ascend the river. He sailed (Oct. 4, 1777) with more than 3,000 troops
