Free Debs Booth

By Martin's Photo Shop


Eugene V. Debs was born in Terre Haute, Indiana. He became the voice and face of socialism in the United States. Two stays in prison and five unsuccessful bids for the presidency did not sway Debs from the plight of the working class. This photograph shows a petition booth in Terre Haute with signs that read "Citizens' Committee - Bring Debs Home for Xmas" and "Ireland is Free, Why Not Debs." Debs returned to Terre Haute after his release from prison, but died less than five years later on October 20, 1926
