140th Anniversary of 1877 Railroad Strike

July 14-15, 2017
Baltimore, Maryland, United States

We are planning a 140th anniversary celebration and discussion about the 1877 rail strike, which began in Baltimore at what is now our baseball stadium. We will have an event July 14-16, 2017, at the historical marker commemorating the strike and a reception at The Irish Railroad Workers Shrine to describe the impact of the strike. We would love to have more participants with any broader discussion of the strike–it’s not a formal “conference” but a way to remember our history.
