Anna Passante’s ‘Anarchy in Bay View’s Little Italy’

(Milwaukee)
In September 1917, an anarchist riot took place at the corner of East Potter and Wentworth avenues in Bay View’s Little Italy. Anarchy in Bay View’s Little Italy, September 9, 1917, and the Shocking Aftermath by Anna Passante documents the event through the eyes of the newspaper reporters. The book also covers the bombing of Milwaukee’s central police station that occurred shortly after the riot and the trial of the eleven alleged anarchists who were involved in the Bay View riot.
