Haymarket Riot

 

  This website is about Haymarket Square Riot 1886.

  There are some articles about what happened in that time period, some pictures, and some more information about Haymarket Riot.

  After the Knights of Labor was formed, they got into a serious trouble because of what happened at Haymarket Square. The workers at the McCormick Harvester Company in Chicago went on strike.

  Like other companies did, the McCormick Company hired strikebreakers, so they can replace for striking workers. In May, the workers clashed with strikebreakers outside the factory. Police were there, and four workers were killed by police.

  Other workers were angry about the killings, so they gathered in Haymarket Square to protest the killings. This was the Haymarket Riot.
