How Did It All Start?

The Struggle of American Workers

The march became an annual tradition to support fellow laborers and to remind employees of the necessity for fair pay and hours. Then in 1882, Canadian labor officials invited an American Union leader, Peter J. McGuire, to participate and watch Toronto’s labor celebration. McGuire was so inspired by the event that he suggested NewYork hold a workers’ parade to the NewYork City Central Labor Union to celebrate workers throughout the city. On Sept. 5, 1882, thousands of NewYork workers marched from city hall to union square, and the day included picnics, concerts, and speeches. In 1884, the date was moved to the first Monday of September, and the Central Labor Union encouraged the whole United States to follow NewYork’s lead and allow laborers to parade through the city streets, all in the name of the “Working Man’s Holiday.” However, Labor Day wasn’t put on the national calendar until after a disaster in Pullman, Illinois. Train workers went on strike to protest the severe pay cuts they were getting, and President Grover Cleveland sent 12,000 federal troops to stop it. The conflict ended with 30 lives lost. To appease the nation, Cleveland signed a bill that made Labor Day a federal holiday in 1894. The holiday increased in popularity and significance up until the second half of the 20th century. Labor Day stood as a rallying point for workers wanting fair pay, benefits, and safer conditions. However, as companies, businesses, and factories have closed down and hired laborers from overseas, the labor force has dwindled considerably. Even so, Labor Day is still celebrated today.

Have you ever wondered why we celebrate Labor Day on the first Monday in September? In the 19th century, the Industrial Revolution changed Canada and the United States, bringing the two countries into the age of modernism. Although employment began to climb, the hours were long, and workers were forced to endure unfair pay cuts. Due to these conditions, workers in both countries started to unionize, which were illegal in Canada until 1872. In Ottawa that year, thousands of workers took to the streets and marched toward Prime Minister John Mcdonalds’ home, abolishing the anti-union law.

and-son duo created tension through the school, as James was a passionate patriot and John was a vehement loyalist. They taught on either side of the classroom, fearlessly debating about the political issues of their time.Then on April 19, 1775, John announced,“War’s begun and school’s done; deponite libros,” which marked one of the most significant moments in the school’s history. One of the more notable historical facts about the school is that five signers of the Declaration of Independence were once students there. Ben Franklin, Samuel Adams, John Hancock, Robert Treat Paine, andWilliam Hooper. However, only four of the five graduated — Benjamin Franklin dropped out, though it did nothing to discourage the inventor’s genius. Over the years, the school moved several times and finally came to rest in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood. To this day, the school stands as a reputable co- ed public school, rich in opportunity and historical significance.

On April 23, 1635, a historical landmark was placed in Boston, Massachusetts — the first American public school. Boston Latin School was founded as a prestigious secondary school meant to prepare young boys for their college years. Boston Latin School was based on the Free Grammar School of Boston, England. Reverend John Colton wanted to replicate the school in the NewWorld, so he went there hoping to create a school just like the one in England, where Latin and Greek were taught. His dreams came true and he had significant influence when the school was initially established. Philemon Pormont, the first headmaster, taught the first classes in his own home. Although not much is known about him, there is a recorded list of headmasters who followed in his legacy. Several headmasters were well-known in the area, including Ezekiel Cheever, author of the widely accepted Latin grammar book titled “Accidence.” Following him was John Lovell in 1734, whose son, James Lovell, became a teacher’s assistant in 1760.
