For the second generation of German revolutionaries that arrived after 1865, the Tenth Ward hotel was a hub of activity as well as a refuge. The International Workingmen's Association was headquartered here from 1872-1876. This was an umbrella organization for several radical and socialist groups and Karl Marx, the leader of their executive committee, recommended the international headquarters be in New York after too much political crosswind in London. The radical groups were keen on education discussions. The older veteran men of the revolution wanted free education for all, as that was the path to freedom. The younger men, proved to be more radical and believed their place in society was more important than free education. At present, this location has been modernized and the Windsor Hotel stands here.
