The United States of India (May 1926)

The May 1926 edition of the The United States of India (Vol. 3, No. 11) features a cover titled "Rani Lakshmi Bai: Heroine of the War of Independence of 1857" with a image of Lakshmi Bai and a short blurb describing her role in the 1857 War of Independence. Interestingly, the blurb draws a comparison between British propagandists' treatment of U.S. and Indian history. The issue includes the following articles and headlines: "Samples of British 'Justice'" by an English Lord; "India of Today" by Kartar Singh; "Mahatma Gandhi on Christian Missionaries." The issue includes a short obituary for Udham Singh, a member of the Ghadar Party, and closes under the headline "India's Price for Liberty" with an image of Babar Akali Martyrs (captioned in Punjabi).
