In this article you say "The two factions were not reconciled until l890, three decades before American women cast their first votes in a national election." I don't think this is quite right. Women cast votes in national elections in some states before the 19th Amendment was ratified. This is because voter qualifications were set by the states, and some states allowed women to vote before the 19th Amendment extended suffrage to women nationwide.
