The Mine Wars: The Bitter Battle Fought By a People Made of Steel
Randall MacLowry, producer and director

Go inside the coal miners' bitter battle for dignity at the dawn of the 20th century with The Mine Wars. The struggle over the material that fueled Ame rica led to the largest armed insurrection since the Civil War and turned parts of West Virginia into a bloody war zone. At the dawn of the 20th century, coal was the fuel that powered the nation. Yet few Americans thought much about the men who blasted the black rock from underground and hauled it to the surface. The Mine Wars tells the overlooked story of the miners in the mountains of southern West Virginia, native mountaineers, African American migrants, and European immigrants who came together in a protracted struggle for their rights
