Today in History, February 6th


February 6, 1919

A general strike began in Seattle, Washington. It was the first complete general strike in U.S. history, shutting down the city. Some 10,000 Japanese immigrants participated in the walkout, as did longshoremen, trolley operators, even bartenders. Read more about it at http://www.lib.washington.edu/exhibits/Strikes!/exh.html
