Gravestone for Nina Van Zandt Spies

$1,151 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 27 people in 8 months
Nina Van Zandt Spies was the widow of Haymarket Martyr, August Spies. She was educated at Vassar College and fell in love with August Spies during the Haymarket trial. She helped August Spies write his autobiography and was disinherited by her wealthy aunt because of Nina Spies' politics. Since her death in 1936, her burial site was never marked. In the midst of updating the booklet, The Day Will Come, author Mark Rogovin discovered the precise location of her grave. The ILHS is working with the cemetery to place a marker for her.  We are hoping to place the order this week, and will plan an event to unveil the new gravestone as soon as it is finished being made.
