Thread Name: Joe Hill's Ashes
Subject: RE: Joe Hill's Ashes
From "The Wobblies" by Patrick Renshaw:

In accordance with Hill's last request, the IWW carried his coffin out of Utah to Chicago. Thirty thousand people attended the funeral at Graceland Cemetary, where graveside eulogies were delivered in nine European tongues. His ashes were scattered in every state of the Union and in many overseas countries on May Day 1916.

Don't mourn, organise - Tom
