The Bisbee Deportaion Of 1917

Moses Palmer arrived in the United States in 1914.  He went to Bisbee, Arizona to work in the copper mine.  I have never heard any family stories about the Deportation of 1917 but I am sure he was a part of what was going on because he was there.  His father in law, William Glaister had arrived there previously and encouraged Moses to come.

I am including some links to stories about the Deportation and hope that you enjoy reading about this as I have.
