They were an army twenty-three thousand strong, hailing from some fifty-one nations - and they had had enough. On January 12, 1912, they left their menial jobs in the monolithic textile mills of Lawrence, Massachusetts, and stormed the streets, commencing what would become one of the most tumultuous, sensational, and effective strikes in history. Bread and Roses is the first full-length account of this watershed event, in which desperate workers - many of them women - battled with the most powerful forces in America in a struggle that defined an age and captured the attention of the world.
