Revolutionary Age, The (1918-1919)

The Revolutionary Age was an American Marxist newspaper edited by Louis C. Fraina and published from November 1918 until August 1919. Originally the publication of Local Boston, Socialist Party, the paper evolved into the de facto national organ of the Left Wing Section of the Socialist Party which battled for control of the Socialist Party throughout the spring and summer of 1919. With the establishment of the Left Wing National Council in June 1919, the paper was moved from Boston to New York City and thus gained status as the official voice of the nascent American communist movement. The publication was terminated in August 1919, replaced by the official organ of the new Communist Party of America, a weekly newspaper known as The Communist. It should be pointed out that there were several, perhaps a dozen, various communist factional newspapers that arose during the rise of the Socialist Party’s pro-Bolshevik revolutionary wing. Each them were nuanced slightly in how they supported the Russian Revolution and what needed to be done to build a pro-Bolshevik wing inside the Socialist Party or, as the case was, split to form a new, Communist Party.
