Everett Massacre — a graphic novel

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Everett Massacre at the foot of Hewitt Avenue in 1916, Historic Everett proudly announces the publication of our graphic novel.

"Who's your leader" shouts Sheriff McRae
“Who’s your leader”, shouts Sheriff McRae at City Dock, to the Wobblies on the Verona.

It was a grisly slice of history that lurked over the city of Everett, Washington — rarely pointed out, but always there — the Everett Massacre. Now the city faces its past with Historic Everett’s release of the EVERETT MASSACRE graphic novel, created by artist Deborah A Fox.

The EVERETT MASSACRE is a 24-page graphic novel depicting the last day leading up to the deaths of seven people. It was the ultimate result of a labor dispute between shingle weavers and lumber mill owners on November 5, 1916 in Everett, Washington.

The graphic novel tells the true tale set against a fictional premise involving three children that get caught in the workers’ conflict as the workers strike for an eight hour workday and the restoration of garnished wages. The narrator is Ernest P Marsh, a true life hero and labor mediator that lived from 1877 to 1963.
