"The Five Anarchists"

Here pictured around a central figure are the four convicted "anarchists" who were executed for their role in the Haymarket Square riot in Chicago that resulted in the deaths of 7 policemen and 4 other persons and wounded more than 100. A crowd of 1,500 had assembled to make demands for an 8 hour working day when a bomb exploded. They are (clockwise from top left) August Spies, Albert Parsons, Adolph Fischer, and George Engle. Twenty-one year old Louis Lingg, pictured at the center, avoided the hanging—he killed himself in prison by exploding a stick of dynamite in his mouth.
