The Wife

Elizabeth Tilton confessed an adulterous relationship with Beecher to her husband Theodore. Adding to the confusion, she admitted, renounced, renounced renouncing, and unrenounced her rerenouncing. Elizabeth was a parishioner of Beecher’s, a suffragist and associate of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony. She was pushed aside and silenced in the melee.
