How They Celebrated, Adrian Evening Telegram, September 5, 1893

Copyright 2012, CABS for Reflections From the Fence

The Adrian Evening Telegram, "A Newsy, Progressive Paper for the People", was published in Adrian, Lenawee County, Michigan.

They sure celebrated in a big way across the state of Michigan in 1893.  There were additional reports on the celebration in Grand Rapids, Battle Creek and Bay City (all Michigan cities).  First from Detroit, Wayne County, Michigan:

Not to be outdone, Jackson's party was substantial as well. (Jackson, Jackson County, Michigan).

In remembrance of the real meaning of Labor Day.
