We will be starting at 7:10 p.m. to accommodate those attendees arriving late. If you can't make it, we will be offering tonight's talk as a podcast. We're sorry for any confusion! In his book, "The Centralia Tragedy of 1919: Elmer Smith and the Wobblies", Tom Copeland, Macalester graduate and lawyer, tells the tale of Elmer Smith, also a Macalester graduate and lawyer. At the end of the Armistice Day Parade of 1919 in Centralia, Washington, Legionnaires, veterans, and others hostile to the Industrial Workers of the World, marched on the IWW union hall intending, again, to run the radicals out of town. https://www.facebook.com/events/1067175976673775/
