Alliance of the Swope Presents: Fred Nation

September 16, 2016 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Fred Nation, a native of Terre Haute, will speak about why Eugene V. Debs, a national figure for all of his public life, remained in Terre Haute, Indiana. Debs was released from prison in 1921 for his dissenting views on World War 1. A crowd of 25,000 people greeted his homecoming at Union Station. From his birth through his entire career, including five presidential candidacies, he lived in Terre Haute and continued to do so until his death. This free talk is open to the public.
