Madison Square Garden never looked like this before
A thousand workers made us feel the horror of class war
It was dreamlike yet so lifelike; tragic yet so grand
The Pageant of the Paterson Strike
The chorus of songwriter Ray Korona’s song about the Pageant of the Paterson Strike, which was created and performed – just once, on this date in 1913 in New York City -- by 1,000 mill workers from the silk industry strike.
