While awaiting execution, Joe Hill sent a telegram to a friend: " I die like a true-blue rebel. Don't waste any time mourning. Organise!"

Hill's last telegram was "Could you arrange to have my body hauled to the state line to be buried? I don't want to be found dead in Utah."
"I don't like to make plans for the day. If I do, that's when words like 'premeditated' start getting thrown around in the courtroom."
