This tour of the 1886 Haymarket Affair is based on historian William J. Adelman's book, "Haymarket Revisited," (Illinois History Society, 1976), and the guided tours Adelman has been leading for years.

Michael P. Conzen and Christopher P. Thale created this wonderful map in the Encylopedia of Chicago History showing the Labor Unrest in Chicago, April 25-May 4, 1886, leading up to the Haymarket Incident.
