Letters From A Dead Man (Konstantin Lopushansky, 1987)
On this day in 1934, violence erupted during a strike in the company town of Kohler, Wisconsin.
From "On this Day in Wisconsin History," Wisconsin Historical Society:
The July 27th violence, which killed two Sheboygan men and injured 40 others, prompted the summoning of 250 Guardsmen to join the 200 special deputy village marshals already present. After striking workers became agitated and began to destroy company property, deputies turned to tear gas, rifles, and shotguns to quell the stone-throwing crowd, resulting in the deaths and injuries. Owner Walter Kohler blamed Communists and outside agitators for the violence, while union leaders blamed Kohler exclusively. Workers at the Kohler plant were demanding better hours, higher wages, and recognition of the American Federation of Labor as their collective bargaining agent.

UNICEF, the UN agency for children, has said 192 children have been killed since Israel’s devastating offensive on Gaza started on July 8, 2014.
