July 20, 1934

Two are killed and sixty-seven are injured in a clash between strikers and police during the trucker’s strike in Minneapolis. After federal mediation fails, Governor Floyd B. Olson declares the city under martial law, and the National Guard takes control of the streets. Want to explore this and other events?

Thanks to Juliana James’ 4th Grade Class at Frost Lake Magnet School part of St Paul Public Schools for the research on January’s Day in History.

Thanks also to Minnesota’s Learn and Serve America Service Learning Program for their help.
