The first musuem of its kind in the USA will open on Stockton Gurdwara’s grounds. Its premier artifact is the hand-cranked printing press used by the revolutionary Gadar Party leaders (who also founded Stockton Gurdwara) to print The Gadar, the first Punjabi-language newspaper in the USA. Published from 1913 to 1948, this paper was instrumental in achieving India’s independence from the British Empire.
