(6567) Strikes, New Jersey Oil Company Strike, Bayonne, Violence, New Jersey, 1915

Caption on the back of the photograph reads: “Wives and children of the Bayonne strikers look on as the men fight with guards. The wives and children of the strikers were forced to leave their homes which are in the immediate vicinity of the battleground between the strikers and the armed Standard Oil guards at Bayonne, NJ on July 23, 1915. They sought refuge on the green in front of the railroad station, from where they viewed the battle in which three of their number met death. Many of the houses of the strikers were riddled by the Winchesters of the Standard Oil guards.”
