Riot at Woodbine, New Jersey 1909

Updated: Feb 3, 2019


Woodbine, N.J., March 8. - Several persons were injured today in a riot growing out of a strike in the hat factory here when a crowd of about 400 set upon a dozen workmen who had not left their jobs. Stones, bricks, and other missiles were thrown.


During the rioting a revolver was fired and Abraham Wilbert (?), one of the men attacked was struck by a brick hurled by someone in the crowd of rioters and rendered unconscious. Several others were hit by missiles before they succeeded in getting clear of their assailants, but none was seriously injured.

When the disturbance had been quelled the shop was closed down for the day.
