Stop Coal Companies From Erasing Labor Union History

Ninety years ago, 10,000 coal miners rose up to fight a private coal company's army -- and their World War I bombers -- in Blair Mountain, West Virginia, for the right to unionize. It was the biggest battle on U.S. soil since the Civil War.
The Battle of Blair Mountain was a watershed moment for the nation's labor movement, which spread from Appalachia’s coal fields to Detroit’s auto factories and Pittsburgh’s steel mills -- and continues today.
Communities nationwide are still struggling against destructive corporate policies, and they have to keep fighting.
Unless enough people across the country stand up to the coal companies in West Virginia again, they’re going to wipe the Blair Mountain historic battle site off the map in the name of profit.
