  •  Such an excellent piece and even (9+ / 0-)

    though it was written about a strike that took place in 1937, the tactics of right to work laws and strike breaking are still in use today. If we forget our past, we will only find ourselves constantly repeating the same struggles over and over again and we cannot understand why we are fighting the same struggle. I cannot tell you how many of my political t-shirts can still be worn today.

    I also wanted to thank you for introducing Mary Heaton Vorse to a new audience. I hope I can hunt down some of her books on the ABE, thanks so much for this excellent piece.
