The lyrics to this song were written by my poetry partner Rob Rolfe about this historical incident called...
"The Battle of Blair Mountain"... It was the largest labor uprising in United States history and one of the largest, best-organized, and most well-armed uprisings since the American Civil War. For five days in late August and early September 1921, in Logan County, West Virginia, some 10,000 armed coal miners confronted 3,000 lawmen and strikebreakers, called the Logan Defenders, who were backed by coal mine operators during an attempt by the miners to unionize the southwestern West Virginia coalfields. The battle ended after approximately one million rounds were fired, and the United States Army intervened by presidential order.

Nice job Larry. Rob's lyrics are very rich with homespun simplicity. Also a good example of what the 2nd Amendment is all about (hint: it's not about hunting). Happy New Year. Thanks - Phil

Just wonderful, Larry. Tell Rob we loved it. I shared this with my brother who was just entered into the Iowa Federation Of Labor's Hall of Fame. I also shared it with his two daughters who are hard working union organizers. Thanks for sharing.
