Eugene Debs started out as a railroad worker and helped found the American Railway Union, the first industrial union in the US. He quickly became President of the union, and led a boycott against handling trains with Pullman cars in what became the nationwide Pullman Strike; this landed him a six month sentence in prison for defying a court injunction against the strike. He was one of the founder members of the international labour union Industrial Workers of the World. Debs ran as a Socialist candidate for President of the United States five times, between 1900 and 1920, the last time from a prison cell.

Half Panama unbleached cotton (heavy weight, textured finish). Stitched on all four sides. Includes hanging loop. Measures approximately 19in x 27.5in. Machine wash at 110 degrees max. We recommend that before you use your tea towel for the first time you wash it at least once to soften up the material and make it more absorbent for drying dishes. Please note size can vary slightly.
