One of the most significant events in the struggle for labor laws in America played out in Las Animas County in the spring of 1914. With the control of much of Colorado's coal mines in the hands of just a few companies, miners grew increasingly intolerant of low wages and dangerous working conditions. Despite efforts to suppress union activity, the United Mine Workers of America called a strike in September of 1913. Over the next few months, tensions escalated as the striking miners ransacked several mines. The dispute culminated in a violent clash on April 20, 1914. Despite this tragic outcome, the event sparked national outrage and led the way of workers' rights in America.

The Colorado labor wars were a series of labor strikes in 1903 and 1904 in the US state of Colorado, by gold and silver miners and mill workers represented by the Western Federation of Miners. Opposing the WFM were associations of mine owners and businessmen at each location, supported by the Colorado state government. The strikes were notable and controversial for the accompanying violence, and the imposition of martial law by the Colorado National Guard in order to put down the strikes. A nearly simultaneous strike in Colorado's northern and southern coal fields was also met with a military response by the Colorado National Guard. Colorado's most significant battles between labor and capital occurred primarily between miners and mine operators. In these battles the state government, with one exception, sided with the mine operators. Additional participants in Colorado's labor struggles have included the National Guard, often informally called the militia; private contractors such as the Pinkertons, Baldwin–Felts, and Thiel detective agencies; and various labor entities, employers' organizations such as the Mine Owners' Associations, and vigilante groups and employer-sponsored citizens groups, such as the Citizens' Alliance. In 1880, miners represented 29 percent of Colorado's working population, declining to 13.7 percent in 1900. Colorado miners were divided into two groups: hard rock miners, and coal miners. Following Colorado's gold rush, most of the easily-worked placer gold deposits were quickly exhausted. Miners turned to hard-rock mining of gold and silver in Colorado's mountainous areas. Numerous mountain communities grew up next to the mines, towns such as Central City, Leadville, Telluride, Idaho Springs, and the Cripple Creek District. The Colorado labor wars took place at the precious metal mines and ore mills. During the same period, but considered separate from the Colorado labor wars, the United Mine Workers of America, attempting to organize the Colorado northern and southern fields, called a strike in September 1903. The Colorado National Guard under Adjutant General Sherman Bell took the side of the mine owners against the miners. There were numerous productive hard rock mines in and around the Cripple Creek District in the mountains west of Colorado Springs. The Cripple Creek District was heavily working class. Many of the mine owners lived in Colorado Springs, on the plain to the east. Mine ore was refined in outlying areas around Colorado Springs, such as Colorado City. Colorado Springs and Cripple Creek were in El Paso County. The miners of the Cripple Creek District resented domination of the county by the mine owners. In 1899, they succeeded in separating the mining areas from El Paso county by establishing Teller County. In late 1902, the Western Federation of Miners boasted seventeen thousand members in one hundred locals. In January 1894, mine owners tried to lengthen the workday for Cripple Creek miners from eight to ten hours without raising pay. This action provoked a strike by the miners. In response, mine owners brought in strike breakers. The miners intimidated the strike breakers, so the mine owners raised a private army of an estimated 1,200 armed men. The gunmen were deputized by El Paso County Sheriff F. M. Bowers, who the companies called upon to break the strike. The miners were also armed, and were prepared for a confrontation. Governor Waite called out the state militia to protect the gold miners and citizens of the district from the gunmen. After the threat of martial law, the mine owners agreed to disband their private army. The Waite agreement on miners' hours and wages subsequently went into effect, and lasted nearly a decade.

On a spring morning in 1914, in the stark foothills of southern Colorado, members of the United Mine Workers of America clashed with guards employed by the Rockefeller family, and a state militia beholden to Colorado’s industrial barons. When the dust settled, nineteen men, women, and children among the miners’ families lay dead. The strikers had killed at least thirty men, destroyed six mines, and laid waste to two company towns. Killing for Coal offers a bold and original perspective on the 1914 Ludlow Massacre and the “Great Coalfield War.” In a sweeping story of transformation that begins in the coal beds and culminates with the deadliest strike in American history, Thomas Andrews illuminates the causes and consequences of the militancy that erupted in colliers’ strikes over the course of nearly half a century. He reveals a complex world shaped by the connected forces of land, labor, corporate industrialization, and workers’ resistance. Brilliantly conceived and written, this book takes the organic world as its starting point. The resulting elucidation of the coalfield wars goes far beyond traditional labor history. Considering issues of social and environmental justice in the context of an economy dependent on fossil fuel, Andrews makes a powerful case for rethinking the relationships that unite and divide workers, consumers, capitalists, and the natural world.

Earth Sciences, mining, oil, etc. playlist:: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=... Public domain film from the Prelinger Archive, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and mild video noise reduction applied. http://creativecommons.org/licenses/b... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthracite Anthracite... is a hard, compact variety of mineral coal that has a high luster. It has the highest carbon content, the fewest impurities, and the highest calorific content of all types of coals, which also include bituminous coal and lignite. Anthracite is the most metamorphosed type of coal (but still represents low-grade metamorphism), in which the carbon content is between 92.1% and 98%... Anthracite ignites with difficulty and burns with a short, blue, and smokeless flame. Anthracite is categorized into standard grade, which is used mainly in power generation, and high grade (HG) and ultra high grade (UHG), the principal uses of which are in the metallurgy sector. Anthracite accounts for about 1% of global coal reserves, and is mined in only a few countries around the world. China accounts for the lion's share of production; other producers are Russia, Ukraine, North Korea, Vietnam, the UK, Australia and the US. Total production in 2010 was 670 million tons... Terminology Other terms which refer to anthracite are black coal, hard coal, stone coal (not to be confused with the German Steinkohle or Dutch steenkool which are broader terms meaning all varieties of coal of a stonelike hardness and appearance, like bituminous coal and often anthracite as well, as opposed to lignite, which is softer), blind coal (in Scotland), Kilkenny coal (in Ireland), crow coal (or craw coal from its shiny black appearance), and black diamond. "Blue Coal" is the term for a once-popular and trademarked brand... Anthracite is similar in appearance to the mineraloid jet and is sometimes used as a jet imitation. Anthracite differs from ordinary bituminous coal by its greater hardness, its higher relative density of 1.3--1.4, and lustre, which is often semi-metallic with a mildly brown reflection. It contains a high percentage of fixed carbon and a low percentage of volatile matter... The moisture content of fresh-mined anthracite generally is less than 15 percent. The heat content of anthracite ranges from 22 to 28 million Btu per short ton (26 to 33 MJ/kg) on a moist, mineral-matter-free basis... Anthracite may be considered to be a transition stage between ordinary bituminous and graphite, produced by the more or less complete elimination of the volatile constituents of the former... History of mining and use In southwest Wales, anthracite has been burned as a domestic fuel since at least medieval times. It was mined near Saundersfoot. In the United States, anthracite coal history began in 1790 in Pottsville, Pennsylvania, with the discovery of coal made by the hunter Necho Allen in what is now known as the Coal Region... By 1795, an anthracite-fired iron furnace had been built on the Schuylkill River... In spring 1808, John and Abijah Smith shipped the first commercially mined load of anthracite down the Susquehanna River from Plymouth, Pennsylvania, marking the birth of commercial anthracite mining in the United States. From that first mine, production rose to an all-time high of over 100 million tons in 1917. From the late 19th century until the 1950s, anthracite was the most popular fuel for heating homes and other buildings in the northern United States... Many large public buildings, such as schools, were heated with anthracite-burning furnaces through the 1980s... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal_mining The goal of coal mining is to obtain coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United States, United Kingdom, and South Africa, a coal mine and its structures are a colliery... Coal mining has had a lot of developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunneling, digging and manually extracting the coal on carts to large open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires the use of draglines, trucks, conveyor, jacks and shearers...

The Luigi Gianella Building, also known as the Aguilar State Bank building, represents the success of a southern Colorado community and its mostly European immigrants to control their own affairs, outside the paternalistic company town model of the time. Aguilar is one of Colorado’s oldest towns. Nestled at the foot of the Twin Spanish Peaks it was first settled by Spaniards who called it the “New Spain.” J. Ramon Aguilar owned the land on which the town now stands and in 1888 it was named in his honor. With the coming of the Aguilar branch of the Colorado & Southern Railroad and the opening of the Peerless Coalmine, numerous coalmine company towns developed. Hundreds of Slavs, Poles, Greeks and Italians came from Europe and became the local coal miners. Aguilar became a melting pot of nationalities with three newspapers, a bank, schools, churches, stores, theaters, saloons, and hotels serving 2,500 residents and coal camps by 1923. The Gianella Building was reportedly designed by Antonio Lo Presto and built of native sandstone by Italian stonemasons. Completed in 1912, It was named after Luigi Gianella, the owner and bank director. The building housed the only bank in the history of Aguilar and it stands as only one of two remaining multi-story buildings on Aguilar’s Main Street. The Aguilar State Bank operated from 1912 to 1927 and was robbed twice in its history. During Prohibition, a large liquor vat made of concrete was built in the basement, where it remains today in silent testimony to free flowing bootlegged whiskey. As coal mining declined, so did the population and bustle of Aguilar. In 1927, the bank went bankrupt and was closed. In later years the building officed a doctor, dentist, and telephone company. The Gianella Building had an uncertain future when listed on the Most Endangered Places in 2004. The original nomination stated that the building was in danger of being disassembled for the stone, which a new owner had planned to use in building a new house. The owner at the time became interested in restoring the building, but its condition proved too decayed. The roof had been missing and the interior walls required stabilization. Colorado Preservation, Inc. helped Aguilar build a support network for the project that now boasts nearly 150 individuals and organizations. Colorado Preservation, Inc. has been working with the out-of-state owner and supporters to develop a future plan for the site. The building was listed on the State Register of Historic Places in 2005. In the meantime, with the owner’s permission and partial funding, the Apishapa Valley Historical Society was awarded a grant from the State Historical Fund for a Historic Structure Assessment, now completed. The assessment presents a preservation plan and a strategy to maintain and preserve the existing fabric of the building. If rehabilitated, there would be more than 6,000 square feet of usable space. One possibility is to stabilize the building as a protected ruin and use it as an open-aired community park. The Town of Aguilar has agreed to take ownership of the building if agreeable terms can be reached with the owner. The local historical society is currently completing a survey of historic resources along the main street in Aguilar. The building is currently listed for sale and the hope is to find a preservation minded buyer who will restore the building.

http://www.ctvvancouverisland.ca http://www.facebook.com/ctvvi CUMBERLAND - Despite having its history deeply rooted in the early days of coal mining, this village in the Comox Valley is adding its voice to others questioning whether a possible mine in the region is a good idea. Councillors for the village of Cumberland passed a motion calling for a more thorough environmental review of the Raven Underground Coal Project, which is being proposed for the Union Bay area. The village joins Courtenay, Comox and the Comox Valley Regional District in looking for an independent provincial baseline study as well as a federal joint review panel to look into the project. The communities are particularly interested in having aquifer mapping completed. The Wilderness Committee congratulated the municipalities on their unified approach to the proposed mine and said that environmental problems created by the project would be too great for the area. The committee's Vancouver Island Campaigner Torrance Coste said the mine would only have a lifespan of 16 years and would threaten several sustainable industries in the area.

In 1858 the cry "Pikes Peak or Bust" opened up the heartland of the Colorado territory to the gold prospector. Gold mining became a significant factor that led to the statehood of Colorado. The miners and the people who provided services to them quickly populated the western frontier of the United States. They needed transportation, and before long the twin steel ribbons of the railroads were pushing into the mountains to transport ore for processing. Towns sprang up overnight and by the 1860's and 1870's people had blanketed the west. It was a rough and tumble time. Small encampments became small towns. Small cities along the rocky mountain Front Range provided a central location for supplies and services. The search for gold drove prospectors to every mountain valley, and every mountain peak. If gold or silver were not located, or if the mines played out, the towns were often abandoned to become ghost towns. Little by little the raw spirit of the frontier died down. By the time gold was discovered in Cripple Creek in 1891, the "frontier" was almost gone. Today almost nothing remains of those exciting days of the old west. A scattered pile of old lumber, a tumbled pile of rocks marking an old mine, an occasional wagon wheel or a piece of equipment. The rip roaring camps of 100 years ago have become ghost towns now only a memory of a bygone era.

The possibilities are endless with this exclusive offering. The property boasts 9 historic buildings of which 6 have been restored, including an historic 2 bedroom log home and 1 1/2 bedroom guest quarters. The views are spectacular in all directions and the feeling of peace and quiet, privacy and history comes over you as you reach the property. This historic property would make a wonderful family, corporate or group retreat center, but the possibilities are endless. Dream your dream. A few details of the property. History - Established in 1877, when General Jackson Palmer built the D&RG narrow gauge “Railroad Above the Clouds” over La Veta Pass. Only lasting 22 years until 1899 before the current “standard gauge” tracks were built 7 miles south of the settlement. Loggers homesteaded the settlement in 1917 and made use of the old railroad-bed to wagon their timber to nearby coal mines. By 1920 there were over 100 people living in the settlement. When the coal industry collapsed in the 1940's the logging business also came to a close. But around the same time the road was paved as a part of the new Highway 160 and the settlement became a hotbed for automobile travelers, who stopped to eat lunch, grab a drink, a game of poker or a dance in the dance hall. When Highway 160 was re-routed in 1962, life at the pass settlement came to an end. It wasn’t until the year 2000, that the settlement came back to life again when the current owners purchased the property as a labor of love. They’ve spent hours upon hours restoring most of the buildings to their original glory, gaining a National Historic District designation, and protecting the land from future development by donating a conservation easement on part of the land and welcomed sight seers, musicians, skiers, hikers and historians. Main Home – The main home is a restored comfortable log structure with 2 bedrooms and one bathroom with a country kitchen, 2 small living rooms, a large great room, deck and covered porch. This is the cabin you dream about. Buildings Included – The vintage 1877 Railroad Depot has been lovingly restored as the train museum. All artifacts and displays are included. The restored Tavern and Dance Hall looks like it's right out of the early 1900’s and would make an excellent venue for weddings, music festivals, or family or corporate gatherings. Its attached 1 1/2 bedroom apartment, which is also restored, is ready for your guests. The restored historic Chapel, built by the logging community, is still in use for weddings and memorial services. The original School House is in process of restoration, but weather tight and ready for your touches. Additionally, there is an old bunk house, old cabins and barns. The property even has an old historic ski lift (not functioning) from days gone by. Venue/Retreat/Ranch -This property would make the perfect family retreat, corporate retreat, business venue, hunting lodge or health retreat with its carefully restored tavern and dance hall complete with a stage area for bands and its unique s-curved bar. It would also make an incredible hunting retreat or private ranch. With added cabins or bunk space, the site could make an excellent dude ranch with existing buildings. The next era of history for this storied property is up to the future discriminating buyer. Hunting- The hunting and wildlife characteristics are second to none. There are Elk, Mule Deer, Black Bear, Coyote, Turkey and various varmints on the property, including an Elk calving grounds. Located in Colorado GMU 85. (More info at the link above)

#CoalMines #SlaveLabor #InsurancePolicy Mid-Lothian Mining employed free & enslaved people to do the deadly work of digging underground. Midlothian is the site of the first commercially-mined coal in the Colony of Virginia and in what became the United States. An article in the Richmond Whig calling for “coal pit hands' who would work for the coming year was published on January 13 1846 The Midlothian Coal Mining Co. was seeking “able-bodied, healthy, well-disposed Negro men' who would work in their coal mines, and the company would pay the masters who hired these men out as well as giving the slaves an opportunity to earn their own money. Young children mostly slaves sat on the ground and sorted coal for twelve hours a day. Slaves played a prominent role in the mining history in the Midlothian area helping to dig out coal and building the mines themselves. One disturbing part of that history is that mine owners took out life insurance policies on the slaves they were using in the mines. 55 miners died here most were enslaved Afrikans, Mercantile Capitalism: Sacred Space Black Enslaved Bodies built the U.S. Economy, Leasing & Insurance Policies on Afrikans, Nicholas Mills, who owned shares in the Midlothian Coal Mining Company, was determined to protect himself from such a calamity. So he purchased policies on more than 20 of his enslaved laborers, including Mr. York, a 40-year-old coal miner and the father of a baby boy. The premiums Mr. Mills paid in the spring of 1846 — about $7,000 in today’s dollars — Mercantile Capitalism The North Profited off a Slavery as much as The South Did!

Was on Tour With The Band Hobo Monk..and as we were driving We ran into Ludlow ..Said a Prayer and this film Makers ask to interview me..then i found out later that it was to become a historic landmark the next day. Funny How The Universe works sometimes........... The Ludlow Massacre was an attack by the Colorado National Guard and Colorado Fuel & Iron Company camp guards on a tent colony of 1,200 striking coal miners and their families at Ludlow, Colorado on April 20, 1914. The massacre resulted in the violent deaths of between 19 and 25 people; sources vary but all sources include two women and eleven children, asphyxiated and burned to death under a single tent. The deaths occurred after a daylong fight between militia and camp guards against striking workers. Ludlow was the deadliest single incident in the southern Colorado Coal Strike, lasting from September 1913 through December 1914. The strike was organized by the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) against coal mining companies in Colorado. The three largest companies involved were the Rockefeller family-owned Colorado Fuel & Iron Company (CF&I), the Rocky Mountain Fuel Company (RMF), and the Victor-American Fuel Company (VAF). In retaliation for Ludlow, the miners armed themselves and attacked dozens of mines over the next ten days, destroying property and engaging in several skirmishes with the Colorado National Guard along a 40-mile front from Trinidad to Walsenburg. The entire strike would cost between 69 and 199 lives. Thomas Franklin Andrews described it as the "deadliest strike in the history of the United States". The Ludlow Massacre was a watershed moment in American labor relations. Historian Howard Zinn described the Ludlow Massacre as "the culminating act of perhaps the most violent struggle between corporate power and laboring men in American history". Congress responded to public outcry by directing the House Committee on Mines and Mining to investigate the incident. Its report, published in 1915, was influential in promoting child labor laws and an eight-hour work day. The Ludlow site, 12 miles (19 km) northwest of Trinidad, Colorado, is now a ghost town. The massacre site is owned by the UMWA, which erected a granite monument in memory of the miners and their families who died that day. The Ludlow Tent Colony Site was designated a National Historic Landmark on January 16, 2009, and dedicated on June 28, 2009. Modern archeological investigation largely supports the strikers' reports of the event.[
