The Chicago Haymarket Riot of 1886
Part 2: Punishment
-
In my last episode, I began the story of the 1886 riot in Chicago in which a group of anarchists exploded a bomb near a line of policemen that killed seven officers, with seven men facing a jury for the horrible crime.
Now in Part Two: Punishment, we’ll hear reports on the resolution of the case, which includes four executions, but not before the anarchists manage to set off another bomb.
In the jail.
For real.
