Living history: The 1901 San Francisco Waterfront Strike
Join San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park's Living History players in reenactment of the 1901 waterfront strike. From July 13 to October 2, 1901, San Francisco's waterfront was shut down by sailors, longshoremen, and teamsters striking for better pay and working conditions. Experience the sights and sounds of SF history through a reenactment. Hear impassioned speeches and voice your own opinion! Take part in a march as strikers implore ships crews to join their ranks. Watch as soldiers arrive to maintain order and see a ship's captain defy the strikers.
The strike reenactment will take place on Hyde Street Pier at 12PM, and repeated at 3PM. The Henry George presentation will be aboard the historic sailing ship Balckutha at 2PM.
