J.S. Woodsworth's account of his incarceration
ca. 1919

In the wake of "Bloody Saturday" on June 21, 1919, labour activist and Methodist minister J.S. Woodsworth was arrested and incarcerated for nine days. His account of his stay in jail provides an enlightening view of his opinions on the Winnipeg General Strike, labour, the working classes, religion, and immigrants. A religious man with a strong social conscience, Woodsworth was also a product of his conservative background. It is clear from his account that he was not accustomed to spending time in jail.
