“All the news that’s fit to sing”: verses from the 1913-14 copper strike


The 1913 Singers will perform songs and poems published in the local newspapers during the 1913-14 Michigan Copper Strike. The material is drawn from the Miners’ Bulletin, the official pro-union newspaper of strike; Työmies, the daily Finnish language newspaper from Hancock; and Truth, the anti-union newspaper of the Citizens’ Alliance. Based in the Houghton/Hancock area, The 1913 Singers have revived these songs, which are an often-overlooked part of the history of the strike.
