Uke Origins: Peggy Seeger's Naming of Names (29) RE: Origins: Peggy Seeger's Naming of Names 30 Apr 13

Another apparent inaccuracy in this song is the inclusion of labour organiser "Mother Jones" (a.k.a. Mary Harris Jones, 1837-1930) among those "all murdered" in Verse 6.

Jones lived to the ripe age of 93 and seems to have died of natural causes.

Easy enough to switch names between the verses, though.
