Congress passed an act making Labor Day a legal holiday in the District
of Columbia and the territories. On June 28, 1894, President Grover
Cleveland
signed it into law. More than a century later, the true
founder of Labor Day has yet to be identified.

Many credit Peter J. McGuire, cofounder of the American Federation
of Labor, while others have suggested that Matthew Maguire, a
secretary of the Central Labor Union, first proposed the holiday.
