Today in Labor History September 30, 1892: In the wake of the Homestead Steel Strike, union leaders were prosecuted for the crime of treason for the first time in U.S. history. Henry C. Frick, chairman of the Carnegie Steel Company, convinced the chief justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to issue warrants for the arrests of every member of the advisory board of the striking steel union for treason against the state. The 29 strike leaders were ultimately charged with plotting "to incite insurrection, rebellion & war against the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania." During the strike, Pinkerton detectives killed seven workers, who were protesting wage cuts of 18-26%. Alexander Berkman tried to assassinate Frick, but failed, and spent many years in prison. He wrote about his imprisonment, and about anarchism, in his “Prison Memoirs of an Anarchist,” published by Emma Goldman’s Mother Earth Press.

Hi😊 I just moved here from another server, so I thought I’d introduce myself: My name is Lisa.
My 1st love is books, a close 2nd is drawing/painting. I walk a lot & place a high value on daily exercise. I work in the field of ophthalmology, but have a background in teaching & aviation. I am married, w/ 2 teenaged boys. Originally I’m from SoCal, but have lived in TN for many yrs & love it. I am definitely a country mouse (vs. city mouse).The older I get, the more I enjoy cold weather, which has led to an obsession w/ sweaters & sweatshirt. There is also a corkscrew in my purse for red wine emergencies.#books #life #photography #introduction @bookstodon
“Tell them about the dream, Martin,” gospel singer Mahalia Jackson urged Dr. King, “tell them about the dream.” And #OTD in 1963 he did - setting aside the prepared remarks for the March on Washington, and starting to ad lib a speech that still rings from the “prodigious hilltops of New Hampshire” to “the curvaceous slopes of California” to “every hill and mole hill of Mississippi.” https://theconversation.com/gospel-singer-mahalia-jackson-made-a-suggestion-during-the-1963-march-on-washington-and-it-changed-a-good-speech-to-a-majestic-sermon-on-an-american-dream-212067 @blackmastodon @histodons #histodons
