I don't recall seeing anything about this on Knoxviews, so forgive me if it has already been posted.

The Suffrage Coalition is raising money for a statue to be placed in Knoxville honoring East Tennesseans Harry and Febb Burn, who played pivotal roles in gaining women's right to vote.

You can make a contribution and have your name or an honoree's name engraved on one of the bricks surrounding the statue. It will be placed downtown next to the East Tennessee History Center.

After the break, you can read the story of Harry Burn, who cast the deciding vote to allow the 19th Constitutional Amendment to be ratified, in case you don't know this tidbit of East Tennessee history.
