Mother Jones

Happy May Day!  Also known as International Workers’ Day, May 1st is celebrated as a national holiday in many countries. Mary Harris “Mother” Jones, the fierce, fiery, & fearless fighter for workers, who called herself a “hell-raiser,” liked to claimed May 1st as her birthday.  This poster with her words–“Pray for the dead and fight like hell for the living”–appears in my book “Mother Jones and the March of the Mill Children.”
