Haymarket Square riot...
Item # 610107
May 5, 1886
NEW YORK WEEKLY TRIBUNE, May 5, 1886
* Haymarket Square riot
* Chicago IL Illinois
* Anarchy - Anarchists
The top of the front page has one column heads on the Haymarket Square riot in Chicago, with: "RIOTOUS MOBS IN CHICAGO" "Disorder Due To Anarchists" "Several Men Severely Wounded In A Conflict With Police" and more. (see hyperlink)
What started as a peaceful rally in support of striking workers turned quickly to tragedy as an unknown person threw a bomb into the police, striking fear across the country that anarchist groups were exercising attempts to overthrown all governments.
Sixteen pages, never bound nor trimmed, a few small worm holes do not detract or cause loss of readability, very nice condition.
