1901 -- Russia: Maxim Gorky, arrested on charges of printing revolutionary literature, is released from prison after the anarchist/novelist Leo Tolstoy intercedes on his behalf.

      "For all, mother dear, for all! The world is ours!     
 The world is for the workers!      For us there is no nation, no race.     
 For us there are only comrades & foes..."           — Maxim Gorky, Mother
