The first big Labor Day in the United States was observed on September 5, 1882, by the Central Labor Union of New York. It became a federal holiday in 1894, when, following the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. Marshals during the Pullman Strike, President Grover Cleveland reconciled with the labor movement.
Wow, now that is something I either didn't know or didn't remember...it was a bit before my time. With that said, I didn't realize that people lost their lives prior to the first Labor Day. It's a bit sobering.
We don't have any big plans...I'm going to work on a few projects and try to get some better ideas and photos for the shop. Here's one I'm just about finished with:
You might wonder why I do so many of the same stamp...in part, my stamp collection is growing slowly, but I also colored several stamps ahead to give life to each "gal" in a fresh way. I also tried to use different variations in color to compliment differing environments.
Thanks for taking the time with me today! Blessings always!
