Handbill titled, “EUGENE VICTOR DEBS, THE CHAMPION OF THE AMERICAN WORKING CLASS-HIS LAST SPEECH” 1pp., 6” x 9”, VG. In small part “Men like Eugene V. Debs cannot be silenced by persecution and jail sentences. Every attack from the enemy strengthens their determination to carry on the cause for which they have been made to suffer, every day behind prison walls strengthens their determination to give themselves without reserve to the revolutionary struggle of the working class. And so Eugene V. Debs, face to face with what to him means a life sentence in jail, has sent to the working class of the United States, to you and to all of us, an appeal that will sound and resound in the hearts of American Labor when his voice has been silenced.” As a leader of the ARU, Debs was convicted of federal charges for defying a court injunction against the strike and served six months in prison. ... He was convicted under the Sedition Act of 1918 and sentenced to a ten-year term. President Warren G. Harding commuted his sentence in December 1921.
