        Sherman Anti-Trust Act (1890) and Resource Materials

        This resource group contains two facsimiles and a transcript of, and a background essay on the Sherman Anti-Trust Act. Approved on July 2, 1890, the Act was the first Federal act that outlawed monopolistic business practices. Despite being dismantled five year later, President Theodore Roosevelt used it successfully in his "trust busting" campaigns, and it was used again in 1904, 1911, in the 1990s, and against Microsoft over 100 years after its passing.
