Meeting of Working Men of New England

Here is an article telling of a meeting at Faneuil Hall, largely attended, “to sympathize with the European Revolution and express the sentiments  of the laboring class in regard to its application in this country.”  Resolutions are passed praising what has been done in  France, and to “call upon the Working Men of New England to oppose a many resistance to the insulting pretensions of a ‘shabby  genteel’ aristocracy, who already assume to control the elections and direct the legislation of the State”, and calls for measures to improve the status of the Working Men.   (Liberator,  May 28, 1848)
