By the time the landmark parade was organized in 1872 the assembly had a membership of 27 unions, representing wood workers, builders, carriage makers and metal workers, plus an assortment of other trades ranging from bakers to cigar makers.
One of the prime reasons for organizing the demonstration was to demand the release of 24 leaders of the Toronto Typographical Union, who had been imprisoned for "crime" of striking to gain a nine-hour working day.
A few months later, on September 3, 1872, seven unions in the nation's capital organized a parade more than a mile long, headed by an artillery band and flanked by city fireman.

 Earthworks - 1872 Mining Law   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The General Mining Law of 1872 is an antiquated statute that allows mining companies to take valuable hardrock minerals including gold, silver, and uranium from public lands without royalty payment to the taxpayer -- unlike other mining industries that extract coal, oil or natural gas.
Since 1872 more than $245 billion in metals and minerals has been extracted without payment to the owners - the public, while the coal, oil and gas industries paid $35 billion between 1994 and 2001 alone.
The 1872 Mining Law is the last vestige of public resource giveaways originally enacted to encourage the settlement of the western U.S.

Grant assumed the presidency in March 1869 as America was undergoing the sweeping, unresolved changes of Reconstruction; thus the important and difficult responsibilities of implementing Congress’s Reconstruction Acts fell upon his shoulders.
The movement, with somewhat shifting membership, can be traced from their temporary break with the Republican party in 1872 to their support of Benjamin Bristow for the Republican nomination in 1876 (with a few eventually supporting the Democrat Samuel Tilden) to their bolt from the Republican party in 1884 to support Democrat Grover Cleveland.
On January 24, 1872, U.S. Senator Carl Schurz of Missouri, judging the Grant administration to be irredeemable, issued a call for a national convention of liberals to nominate a candidate for president.

 Green Scissors 2001 1872 Mining Law Reform
Under the 1872 Mining Law, mining companies extract minerals from publicly owned lands without paying royalties to the federal government.
This policy differs from federal policy toward the coal, oil and gas industries, all of which must pay royalties for extracting minerals from public lands.
The archaic 1872 Mining Law not only distorts the minerals market, it promotes environmental destruction of public lands because it includes no provisions for environmental protection and elevates mining as the best use of the land, regardless of other potential uses.

There were plans to construct a railroad bridge from San Francisco to Oakland, and a “Bay Bridge Committee” was hard at work during early 1872 attempting to resolve political problems with the Central Pacific Railroad, as well as San Francisco and Oakland interests, to build such a bridge.
The Bay Bridge Committee lately submitted its report to the Board of Supervisors, in which compromise with the Central Pacific was recommended; also the bridging of the bay at Ravenswood and the granting of railroad facilities at Mission Bay and on the water front.
