The Centralia Horror. Up and In Action

Seattle: Washington Branch General Defense Committee, 1927. First edition. 4to, [6] pp. [including covers]. Two unbound, folded sheets.

A songsheet issued by the IWW to commemorate the Wobbly victims of the Centralia Massacre, and to raise funds for the families of the Wobblies who were jailed after the attack on their headquarters. The song is bracketed by two pages of a chronological account of the attack and aftermath. It includes an account of the castration and lynching of the WWI veteran (and Newport, Oregon-born) logger Wesley Everest, though his name is not used.

The back cover includes a list of I.W.W. members in prison across the U.., and their mailing addresses.

1" closed tear to lower margin throughout, and some additional smaller marginal tears, toning and some creasing, but still completely intact and very good.
