Eugene Debs ran for President of the United States five times on the Socialist Party ticket. In 1918, Debs gave a speech to a crowd in Canton, Ohio. He advocated for socialism and argued that the war against Germany was unjustified. The Wilson administration prosecuted Debs for violating the Espionage Act.

Once again, Justice Holmes wrote the majority opinion that upheld the conviction.
