“The cover is a full-blown stereotype of the anarchist. Shaggy-haired, low-browed, his bearded jaw set in defiance, he is set amidst his trappings of death and destruction, including dark flags, dagger, revolver, and, of course, bombs.”

-Historian Carl Smith on the cover of The Red Flag; or the Anarchists of Chicago, published in 1886 two weeks before the Haymarket verdict. 

We’ll be showing more depictions of Chicago anarchists during the time of Haymarket - and what those influences were - as part of our #haymarketstory investigation. 

They do all tend to have mustaches, though.
