Virtual Tour | The Haymarket Affair
Saturday, August 29
On May 4, 1886, Chicago and the country changed forever when a bomb went off in Haymarket Square during a rally for the eight-hour workday. While the bomber remains unknown, eight men were tried for what they said rather than what they did. Join author and historian Paul Durica on a tour of places and spaces relevant to this Chicago story focused on labor relations, immigration, social protest, and the right to peaceful assembly in times of uncertainty and terror.
