THE MOST IMPORTANT EVENT IN GILDED-AGE AMERICA
*** A "MUST-SEE MOVIE" IN LABOR HISTORY***
HAYMARKET: THE BOMB, THE ANARCHISTS, THE LABOR STRUGGLE.
The Chicago Haymarket tragedy, where a bomb thrown into the ranks of Police was followed by an eruption of panic and violence resulting in a trial and execution of presumably innocent workers' rights activists, is examined in this feature documentary film. Expert historians and professors present the history of the bomb, the anarchist and socialist movements of the 19th century, and the labor struggle of working people fighting for a shorter work day during the industrial might of America's Gilded Age.
