New Today in History Entry Marks May Day as Workers' Day

New entry! To take advantage of the wealth of digitized content on the Library of Congress website, this morning we launched a new Today in History entry on May Day as Workers' Day. Initiated by U.S. labor organizations to commemorate the tragic Haymarket Affair of 1886, by 1890 May Day had become International Workers’ Day. With time it has turned into an annual holiday in countries around the world.

Drawing heavily from the Library's digitized content in order to highlight people, events, and activities associated with each day of the year, Today in History is an important portal for educators, students, and lifelong learners interested in learning about American history and culture. Launched in April 1997, Today in History is regularly fact-checked and updated by reference staff from the Library’s Humanities & Social Sciences Division.

To receive daily Today in History alerts through email or RSS, visit the "For Specific Audiences" section of the Library's email subscriptions page. Find the "Today in History" listing, select your preferred delivery option, then follow the instructions.
