The Chicago Historical Society has put an exhibition on the "The Dramas of
Haymarket" on the web:


  Welcome to The Dramas of Haymarket, an online project produced by
  the Chicago Historical Society and Northwestern University. The
  Dramas of Haymarket examines selected materials from the Chicago
  Historical Society's soon-to-be-completed Haymarket Affair Digital
  Collection, an electronic archive of CHS's extraordinary Haymarket
  holdings. The Dramas of Haymarket interprets these materials and
  places them in historical context, drawing on many other items from
  the Historical Society's extensive resources.
