Abstract

In wars of revolution, monuments become one of the most likely targets. Weatherman Underground's repeated bombing of Chicago's Haymarket police statue in 1969 and 1970, despite its evocation of the Haymarket incident— a landmark event in the history of Chicago and national labor politics— has largely been a footnote to the more consequential violence of the late 1960s. Instead, we argue that the spatial politics surrounding Weatherman's Haymarket police statue bombings highlight a critical historical juncture in an ongoing tension between the enforcement of social stability and the promises of democracy in the United States.
