Description

Strikes, Union battles, murders and frame-ups were common across the USA in the first half of the 20th century. But none of the uprisings compared, in sheer scope, to the West Virginia Mine Wars of the 1920s. The battle was only quelled when the US Army brought in guns, poison gas and aerial bombers to stop the 10,000 bandanna-clad miners who formed the spontaneous ‘Red Neck Army’.

Told by Union leader Bill Blizzard’s son, this is the full story of this momentous battle.
