It was the place where many battles were fought over the right to work - "the right to work" that would lead to trade unions and eventually change the world.
Haymarket has seen thousands of events, from peace-making speeches by Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King Jr., to rallies for workers' rights by Karl Marx, Emma Goldman and C.L.R. James.
