Blood On the Tracks
Kindle Edition, 79 pages
In the summer of 1877, working class Americans rose against their bosses in city after city. Most history books barely mention the Great Railroad Strike but it changed us forever: this was when Americans decided not to be serfs. BLOOD ON THE TRACKS draws on newspaper accounts and eyewitness stories to show how and why this violent uprising broke out and what it meant then, and what it means now.
