Knights of Labor in New York City.

Matthew M. Maguire and Peter J.

Peter J. McGuire, a New York City carpenter, helped found the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners.

Two years later, in 1884 the group held a parade on the first Monday of September and a resolution was adopted to hold all future parades on that day and to designate the day, Labor Day.

In 1887, Oregon became the first state to make Labor Day a legal holiday. In 1894, President Grover Cleveland signed a bill making Labor Day a national holiday.
