The Aberration -Episode 28- The Battle Of Blair Mountain
Hosted by Cole Johnson
Join me this Friday night for a historical study of the Battle of Blair Mountain and the West Virginia Coal Mining Wars. I will explain the history of these events and I will explain how these events are relevant to the current situation in America. This will include such topics as Worker's Rights, Corporations, the Federal Reserve Bank, U.S. Government involvement in workers' strikes and the Death of innocent American Civilians.
The West Virginia Coal Wars (1920–21), also known as the Mine Wars, arose out of a dispute between coal companies and miners. On May 19, 1920, a shootout in West Virginia between agents of the Baldwin-Felts and local miners, sparked what became known as the Battle of Blair Mountain, the largest insurrection in the United States since the American Civil War. Ten-thousand coalminers fought for five days against a coal-operator backed army entrenched along 14 miles of steep ridges at Blair Mountain. The battle ended after approximately one million rounds were fired, and the United States Army intervened by presidential order.
