December 1899 Market Crash

An interesting story about a "Day of Panic and Financial Wrecks" from the New York Times archives.

"After yesterday's experience Wall Street men, recalling the troubles following President Cleveland's Venezuelan message in 1895, and the opening of the Bryan free silver campaign in 1896, were inclined to talk of those times as days of comparative quiet."
