- DescriptionDuring the first half of the century, strikes, Union battles, murders and frame-ups were common in any industrial centre in the US - but ne of the uprisings compared, in sheer scope, to the West Virginia Mine Wars of the 1920s. The battle and Union leader Bill Blizzard's quest for justice 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 Bill Blizzard's son, this is the full story of this momentuous battle.
- Author BiographyWilliam C. Blizzard was a third generation union agitator, a coal miner from WV s first family of labor, and a journalist. Wess Harris is a former union coal miner and an activist and educator with Appalachian Community Services. He lives in Gay, West Virginia.
