Everett Massacre

On Nov. 5, 1916 five Wobblies (probably really twelve) and two citizen deputies were killed during the Everett Massacre. The Wobblies had traveled up from Seattle in order to support a mill strike. The first link is the to the Everett Public Library, where there are also mug shots of wanted Wobblies and a great page of I.W.W. propaganda posters. The University of Washington also has a nice set of primary sources on the massacre, including great contemporary newspaper accounts of the tragedy. At the I.W.W. Reading Room you can scroll down to PDF files of The Everett Massacre, a History of the Class Struggle in the Lumber Industry - by Walker C Smith, 1916. (Sorry, no anchor tags.)
