The Paint Creek/Cabin Creek strike started on April 18, 1912, and lasted through July 1913. This strike was the largest and bloodiest confrontation between miners and coal companies. Miners were fighting for increased wages and healthier working conditions, but above all they were fighting for unionization. They depended heavily on the UMWA for support but the coal companies did everything they could to keep the union out. Coal camps became war camps, and every miner had their own personal weapons to defend themselves.
