Abstract:

This is an account of a major conflict between American labor and industry between 1913 and 1914. Unrest began in the coal-bearing foothills of the Rocky Mountains where intolerable work conditions caused labor insurgence, which was met with capitalist resistance. It culminated when the Colorado National Guard and the Colorado Fuel & Iron Company camp guards attacked a tent colony of 1200 striking miners and their families. More than two dozen people were killed in what became known as the Ludlow Massacre. In all, the entire strike would lead to between 100 and 200 deaths and was a watershed moment in American labor relations.
