Timeline

1920 - In the year that Connie O Williams was born, on January 1, over 6000 people were arrested and put in prison because they were suspected of being communists. . Many had to be released in a few weeks and only 3 guns were found in their homes.

But the "hunt" ended after Attorney General Palmer forecast a massive radical uprising on May Day and the day passed without incident.
