/The Knights of Labor, founded in 1869, was once the mainstream of 
organized labor in the U.S. By 1886 it had between 700,000 and a million 
members and engaged in significant acts of class struggle./

/The Knights proclaimed a vision of a cooperative society and proposed 
to create bonds of solidarity embracing all workers regardless of race, 
sex, nationality, religion, occupation, or skill level./

/Largely written out of history the Knights have much to teach us about 
class-wide solidarity and alternatives to exploitative capitalism./
