I'm guessing you're all vaguely aware of what happened on this day in 1605. In 1872, Susan B. Anthony cast a vote in the presidential election. She was fined $100 for her illegal vote two weeks later, but never paid the fine. In 1916, twelve members of the IWW from Seattle were killed when the boat they were on was fired upon by vigilantes trying to prevent them from attending a demonstration by striking IWW members in the town of Everett, Washington. Two of the vigilantes were also killed. IWW members were charged with the murders of the vigilantes, but charges were dropped because they'd been shot in the back by gunfire from other vigilantes. In 1917, Communist revolutionaries overthrew the provisional government in Estonia.
