Eugene V. Debs and Constitutional Liberties, 1895 and 1919

Event Type: Adult Program
Age Group(s): Adult
Date: 10/21/2017
Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Time: 3:30 PM
 Ernest Freeberg of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, has been forced to cancel his appearance by a family emergency. There will still be a program at the library with local speakers. We will be talking about Eugene V. Debs and the two United States Supreme Court cases concerning his constitutional freedoms decided in 1895 and 1919.

Debs became a socialist in McHenry County Jail in 1895 partly because of the federal government's support of the railroads and Pullman Company and disregard for the American Railway Union's freedom of association. As a socialist, Debs in 1918 opposed the participation of the United States in World War One in a speech for which he was prosecuted by the federal government.

The event is hosted by Woodstock Celebrates, Inc. Admission is free.
