This photo from the Utah state archives shows Joe Hill’s prison records, identifying him as Joseph Hillstrom. Lionized in a song sung by Pete Seeger and Bruce Springsteen, labor activist and songwriter Joe Hill is revered by many as a hero and martyr.  To others, Hill was a murderer who gunned down a Salt Lake City grocer and his son and got what he deserved when he was executed by firing squad in 1915.
