    1877 · The First Workers Strike
    Age 1
    The country was in great economic distress in mid-1877, which caused many workers of the Railroad to come together and began the first national strike in the United States. Crowds gathered in Chicago in extreme number to be a part of the strike which was later named the Great Railroad Strike. Shortly after the strike began, the battle was fought between the authorities and many of the strikers. The conflict escalated to violence and quickly each side turned bloody.
    1883 · History of Hegewisch
    Age 7
    Community Area 55, 16 miles SE of the Loop. Early maps indicate that a natural water passage existed from the present location of Hammond, Indiana, to the western banks of Wolf Lake through Hyde Park Lake. Native Americans settled on sand dunes and traveled along this passage for trade purposes. Waterfowl also followed this natural route during migratory periods as the primary feeder to the Mississippi flyway. Immigrant laborers and other settlers built the first railroads across this terrain into Chicago in the 1850s. Originally part of Lake Township, it became part of Hyde Park Township in 1867. In 1889, Hegewisch was annexed to Chicago along with the rest of Hyde Park Township. Adolph died a few years later and the Rolling Stock Company became part of the Pressed Steel Car Company before World War I. During these decades, Joseph H. Brown and other industrialists developed steel mills in and around Hegewisch. New residents included many Polish, Yugoslavian, Czechoslovakian, Swedish, and Irish workers. Read Encyclopedia of Chicago for more information.
    1890 · The Sherman Antitrust Act
    Age 14
    This Act tried to prevent the raising of prices by restricting trade. The purpose of the Act was to preserve a competitive marketplace to protect consumers from abuse.
