The life stories of eight working-class militants railroaded to prison or the gallows for the 1886 Haymarket bombing in Chicago. Written from prison, these accounts present a living portrait of the labor movement of the time, as well as the lives and ideas of these fighters for workers' rights.

"A carefully prepared and useful study of the bombing event in Chicago in May, 1886, which marked a bloody turning in American labor history."-Kliatt
