What Really Happened; True American Stories
As just one example, a statue in the town square of Centralia, Washington, is dedicated to the brave veterans of WWI who were
slain as they marched in the Veterans Day Parade in 1918 to celebrate the American victory over Germany in the Great War.
What really happened? While some details are in dispute, it is clear that some marching soldiers broke off from the parade
and attacked the I.W.W. (Industrial Workers of the World) union hall. The union members fired their guns in self defense
and within minutes five marchers were dead. Several union members were arrested and that evening. Wesley Everest, a
union organizer, was dragged from his cell and lynched by vigilantes. We have a history to be proud of, but throughout this
country there are monuments, statues and plaques that commemorate the wrong victims or make heroes of the wrong people.
If you know of an incident in history in your town that cries out for the truth to be heard, send me the details and help to set
the record straight. If I am able to include it in the book, What Really Happened; True American Stories, upon publication I will
send you an autographed copy.
