In 1913, in Stockton, California, Har Dayal and other immigrants formed the Gadar Party to support India’s surging movement for independence from Britain. In the same spirit that American colonists organized for freedom from England, Indian immigrants campaigned for dignity and rights for Indians back home. Here, a jatha, or group of freedom fighters from the Gadar Party, in San Francisco in 1924, gets ready for a trip back to India.
