Other states followed and by 1894, 30 of them had taken similar action. It was in that year that Congress legalized the holiday in the District of Columbia and the territories.

The first show of support came from the Central Labor Union of New York, which held a parade in September, 1882.

The first Monday was chosen because it fell midway between--July 4 andu Thanksgiving. Parades were held in New York every year after that. In 1884, the three-year-old American Federation of Labor designated the day as Labor Day. A continent away, Oregon was the first state to enact a law1 making the first Monday in September a holiday.
