The Centralia Massacre. During a parade in Centralia, Washington, on the first anniversary of the Armistice Day, a confrontation erupts between members of the American Legion, who see the war as a glorious achievement, and workers, members of the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), who see the war as a crime against working people. Six die in the confrontation, more are wounded.

Birth of Ulli Diemer, libertarian socialist writer, editor, and archivist. He compiles a People’s Chronology called “Seeds of Fire” – and deviously slips his own birthday into the chronology.
Quote: “We need all the help we can get in overthrowing capitalism, including the help of people who are dead.”
