Labor Trail

Carter Harrison (1825-1893) served twice as the Democratic Mayor of Chicago (1879-1887 & Apr. to Oct. 1893). He built a political coalition along lines of ethnic and class issues and remained relatively friendly to the working class even during the Haymarket clash. Harrison was assassinated by a frustrated office seeker just before the closing of the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago.
