On 5 November 1916, 250 Wobblies aboard the steamer Verona were met at the Everett City Dock by Sheriff Don McRae and 140 deputies. When the shooting stopped, five men were dead, two were dying, and dozens were wounded. How did they get to this point? Using expert analysis, archival material, and animation, Verona: The story of the Everett Massacre explores the killing, the cause, and the characters in this long-forgotten labor conflict.
