The Labor History Tour
June 26, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Join the Illinois Labor History Society for a truly memorable labor history tour of Chicago on Sunday, June 26th from 9am-noon.
While we are still planning the details of the tour itinerary, Chicago offers many sites of nationally important labor history. Walk down the streets of historic Pullman, and learn about the lives and struggles of the workers who built the famed Pullman Sleeping Cars. Visit the cemetery that is the final resting place of the Haymarket Martyrs and see the Monument that draws visitors from across the globe. Stand at the stockyard gate and imagine the sights, the sounds, and smells of the place that once produced eighty-percent of the meat sold across the nation. Our guides will help bring this history to life and introduce you to some of the most significant figures in Chicago labor history. Tickets are just $25.
