    Terre Haute's Top 40: Eugene V. Debs - By Mark Bennett, Terre Haute Tribune Star
    In his eventful life, Debs went from serving as the Terre Haute city clerk and a state representative to organizing the nation's first industrial union, speaking around the nation about working-class causes, and running for president. In two of those elections, Debs topped 900,000 votes. And he conducted his 1920 campaign from the federal prison in Atlanta, where he was jailed under the wartime espionage act for making an anti-World War I speech in 1918 at Canton, Ohio.

    That irony is captured on those campaign buttons sold by the foundation. It includes a photograph of Debs outside his cell, surrounded by the phrase 'For President: Convict No. 9653.'
