Yes, there really is such a thing! Very handy and much easier than writing poetry myself….
Much more, and for many other holidays and special days, here:
A prose version by the same authors, with a brief history of Labor Day, here:
Google Books can be quite a resource for books like these, published in the early 1900s, that you would probably never come across otherwise. Try this: an advanced search for "Atlanta" in publications that are available in full, published between 1860 and 1870. The Harper’s Magazine piece on Sherman’s Great March is an excellent read.
Historical resources such as industry trade journals are also frequently available on Google Books. Publications like The Railway Conductor may seem a bit pedantic — but they also provide a window into intellectual history by showing how ideas influence society, culture, and everyday life. This Labor Day address by J.F.T. O’Connor (click the image to read the entire address) is an example of what I mean.
Happy reading — and Happy Labor Day!
