Labor Day, which marks the “unofficial” end of summer, occurs annually on the first Monday in September.

The quiz below, from the Ashbrook Center at Ashland University in Ashland, Ohio, provides an opportunity for you to test your knowledge of the American labor movement and the history of Labor Day.
