In April, 2015, in the midst of researching and writing City of Grit and Gold, we traveled to Chicago en route to see my husband’s extended family in Indiana. We visited the Chicago History Museum as a family, and then my husband took our kids up the Sears Tower while I made my way on foot to the site of the Haymarket Riot. I used my iPhone for directions, but alas! Siri led me astray. I ended up running through the streets of Chicago, much like the character Addie does, to make it to the Haymarket and back to the Sears Tower in time to meet my family. Here I am at the monument to the Haymarket- winded and exhilarated!
