A picnic was part of the very first Labor
on Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City. The full story is in the "Jump
Back in Time" section
of America's Library. Here, you can read what happened on any day
in history or play a game, called "Super Sleuth," in which you
determine what's wrong with a series of photographs.
America's Library is
a Web site for kids and families that provides more than 4,000
"historical anecdotes" richly illustrated with materials from the
Library of Congress. This interactive site appeals to users of
all ages, with its fascinating, sometimes idiosyncratic, details
of U.S. history.
