This week's National Park Getaway
- The right to vote is so basic in any democratic nation that it can be hard to believe that until quite recently, not every U.S. citizen age 18 or older enjoyed that right.

series of travel articles – the Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail – honors and tells the story of Americans whose passion for justice achieved a historic and long-overdue expansion of suffrage in our country in the 1960s.
