The first Labor Day celebration dates back to a parade in New York on Tuesday, September 5, 1882. More than half the states were celebrating Labor Day by 1893, but it wasn't made a national holiday until June 28, 1894, when President Grover Cleveland signed it into law.</p> <h3>Books</h3> <h4>Reference</h4> <p class="book-record"><a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1281799"><span class="jacket"><img alt="" src="/sites/default/files/images/bibisbn/b1281799.jpg" /></span>Historical encyclopedia of American labor</a> by edited by Robert Weir and James P.

Those words, written by <a href="http://catalog.cantonpl.org/record=b1084011">Joni Mitchell</a> in her famous song about the event, perfectly captured the feelings about the music festival for those who were there. It was forty five years ago on August 15, 1969, that thousands of people gathered in rural Bethel, New York to attend what would become an historic outdoor concert.
