The 1921 West Virginia Coal War
The week-long Miners' march and Battle of Blair Mountain, a culmination of decades of strife in the coalfields of WV, had more men under arms than at the pivotal battle of Trenton during the American Revolution, although most Americans outside of WV have never heard of it. We want to encourage students to come and experience (as much as they can) the sights, smells, tastes, and feeling of both the armed miners and the Logan County Defenders, and to understand their reasons for taking up arms.
