In 1884, President Grover Cleveland designated the first Monday in September as Labor Day and an official Federal Holiday. In 1898, Samuel Gompers called Labor Day, "The day when toilers' rights and wrongs may lay down their tools for a holiday...touch shoulders in marching phalanx and feel the stronger for it." I had to look the definition of phalanax up; that's a big word for 1898.
