Press West is delighted to announce a new San
Francisco history title, Fremont
Older & The 1919 San Francisco Bombing: A Tireless Crusade
for Justice, from author John
A tragic bombing. Two men falsely accused.One journalist seeking
justice. On Saturday, July 22, 1916, as Preparedness
Day parade units assembled south of San Franciscos
Market Street, a terrorist bomb exploded, killing ten people
and wounding forty.
San Francisco was outraged. Instead of searching for the perpetrators,
however, the district attorney used the bombing as an excuse
to arrest, try and convict two obscure labor figures without
evidence. What became known as the American Dreyfus
Case led to an international outcry, finally resulting
in one defendants pardon and the others parolebut
only after both men had been imprisoned for twenty-three years.
