Agricultural workers assemble in Wheatland in August 1913 as unrest grew over wages and working conditions. Seasonal hop pickers walked off the job at the urging of socialist labor organizers, and violence broke out when the sheriff tried to arrest the organizers. The photo appears in "The Wheatland Hop Riot," published by the Wheatland Historical Society.
