This chapter takes a look at Sigmund Zeisler, a prominent Chicago attorney and one of the defenders of the anarchists in the Haymarket trial of 1886. Zeisler and Fanny Bloomfield advanced the friendship that had begun in Bielitz and were married in Chicago on October 18, 1885. Zeisler expressed the expectation that Fannie would give up performing when she married or had a child. By adapting to the reality of her wife's ambition and its impact on the potential success of their marriage, Zeisler was articulating a more unconventional and nuanced sensibility. This chapter provides a background on Zeisler's education, his ideas on marriage, and his influence on Fannie, as well as the roots of the Haymarket Riot.
