In the Memorial Day massacre of 1937, the Chicago Police Department shot and killed ten unarmed demonstrators in Chicago, on May 30, 1937. The incident took place during the Little Steel strike in the United States.
On Memorial Day, hundreds of sympathizers gathered at Sam's Place, a former tavern and dance hall at 113th Street and Green Bay Avenue, that served as the headquarters of the SWOC. As the crowd marched across the prairie towards the Republic Steel mill, a line of Chicago policemen blocked their path. The foremost protestors argued their right to continue. The police, "feeling threatened," fired on the crowd. As the crowd fled, police shot and killed ten people, four dying that day and six others subsequently from their injuries. Nine people were permanently disabled and another 28 had serious head injuries from police clubbing.
In the book Selected Writings by Dorothy Day (who was present), the events of the protest are summarized as thus: 'On Memorial Day, May 30, 1937, police opened fire on a parade of striking steel workers and their families at the gate of the Republic Steel Company, in South Chicago. Fifty people were shot, of whom 10 later died; 100 others were beaten with clubs.'

In 1913, the day before US President Woodrow Wilson was to be Inaugurated, The Womens Suffrage Movement marched on Washington D.C.
Woman Suffrage Procession - Wikipedia
The event was massive, and even had people from around the world performing symbolic plays as part of the demonstration. Here is German actress Hedwig Reicher wearing the costume of "Columbia" with other suffragettes standing in background in front of the Treasury Building in Washington, District of Columbia, on March 3, 1913. Long forgotten today, Columbia was a female representation of the progress hoped for in the New World, sort of a female Uncle Sam if you will.
Many people ventured to DC anywhere they could, which mostly was by train. Some just walked all through the city on a cold day as well to get to the event.
The event was organized by key Suffrage Movement leaders like Alice Paul, Anna Howard Shaw and Lucy Burns. Together they recruited hundreds of womens groups from around the country for the parade. All told, some 8,000 women marched down the DC streets with signs and symbols of the movement. Anywhere from 100,000-200,000 men and women lined the crowds.
The parade itself was led by Inez Milholland, pictured here. She was a key womens labor lawyer and rode this white horse at the front. She was followed by 9 bands, 5 mounted brigades, and 26 floats.
At least 38 states had womens groups join the parade, often carrying their state flags and state symbols.
They even had some Native American womens groups attend as it truly was a near complete womens countrywide event.
However, some groups of people started to engulf the women in the parade, as pictured, and at times did not allow them forward. Harassment began, from mostly men, and the police at first did not stop the conflict. In some areas, fights broke out, many of whom were men from both sides of the argument tussling with each other. Around 200 people had to be treated for injuries at local hospitals after the day was done, but no reported major injuries or deaths occurred.
A couple important notes about this parade. Black suffragettes were allowed to attend, but were segregated and appeared to not actually march in the parade. There are rumors that Alice Paul objected to their participation in any capacity but Anna Howard Shaw insisted on any black women suffragette wanting to come could.
Also of note, many men, papers, and other groups supported the movement, especially after such a display, which was a key reason it drastically helped change things for women in the US and other countries. This [picture is a great picture of both black and white crowd members, as well as you can even see a mounted officer pushing back a gentlemen who ventured beyond the crowd to voice his opposition to the marchers. The Suffrage Movement was a massive push for womens rights, and did massive changes for the US in particular in the value, purity, and acceptance of women. It had so many great aspects involved in it. Many other womens movements over the next 100 years occurred, even today, and regardless of how everyone feels about some of them, especially todays womens movements, I feel it is important to see, know, and understand the first big suffrage movement. The movement existed for years, and many demonstrations in the UK preceded this march, but the scale of this specific parade was unseen before. And best of all, it was well documented and photographed especially for the time period.

"Just as he is proud of the women in his own family, the King is proud of his female subjects and all that they have contributed to the war. [...] The King has been advocating for their capable inclusion in the nation’s plight all along. Early on in the munitions crisis in 1915 he suggested that women might be brought to manufacture shells in larger numbers, and that Mrs Pankhurst might be employed as a successful recruiting agent. [...]
By 1918 women are not only eligible for the OBE, but the first of them are legally entitled to vote, and in some quarters the Their Majesties are credited with helping this to happen. ‘It is an open secret that the pride of the King and Queen in the war work that the women of England have undertaken knows no bounds... Our broad-minded King, encouraged we feel sure, by his sympathetic Queen, had made it possible for good services rendered by women to be recognised in the same way that men receive reward.’ In the course of nearly four years of war, His Majesty has seen thousands of female workers and their passion, their dedication and their vivacity at the exciting new world opening up for them gives him no end of pleasure. He bombarded working girls with questions: How long had they been employed? Did they like their work? And what of their brothers at the front? He has a fatherly soft spot for a girl in uniform, and those war-girls have infiltrated almost every establishment that the King visits."

The Great Molasses Flood of 1919 in Boston, one of history’s most bizarre disasters and one that has remained a topic of grim fascination ever since. The catastrophe happened after a giant storage tank at the Purity Distilling Co. on Commercial Street in Boston’s North End ruptured, releasing a massive wave of molasses that killed 21 people, injured 150, crushed buildings, and tore a firehouse from its foundation. The disaster, which occurred shortly after noon on Jan. 15, 1919, submerged two city blocks within seconds, overcoming people in the streets.

As a 19-year-old university student, Carl Størmer used a hidden camera to photograph life in Oslo, Norway from 1893 to 1897.
Carl Størmer (1874-1957) was a young student of mathematics when he purchased his first hidden camera. It was so small that the lens fit through the buttonhole in his vest with a cord that led down to his pocket, allowing him to secretly snap away.
In his biography for the Fellows of the Royal Society, he revealed it was actually a secret crush that led him toward photography. “When he was a young man at Oslo University he fell in love with a lady whom he did not know and with whom he was too bashful to become acquainted,” writes his biographer. “Wishing at least to have a picture of her, he decided that this was possible only by taking a photograph of her himself, without her knowing.” And while the love affair came to nothing, Størmer continued capturing images of people on Karl Johansgate, the main street in Oslo, over the course of his studies from 1893 to 1897. The results are close to 500 secret images that show a wide range of people in a casual, relaxed state. Working like a paparazzo, Størmer would greet his subjects and then snap away as they approached. Friendly salutations and suspicious glances play out across his work, serving as some of the first examples of street photography.
“It was a round flat canister hidden under the vest with the lens sticking out through a buttonhole…Under my clothes I had a string down through a hole in my trouser pocket, and when I pulled the string the camera took a photo…I strolled down Carl Johan (street), found me a victim, greeted, got a gentle smile and pulled. Six images at a time and then I went home to switch the plate.”
