2021 marks the 100th Anniversary of the Battle of Blair Mountain, one of the most significant labor actions in American history.
We—museums, descendants of the RedNeck Army, labor activists, musicians, teachers, history buffs, and more—gathered in early September to host and attend a slate of events across Central Appalachia, and online. Collectively, these programs brought this proud, working-class history to new audiences in new ways.
And now, we’re excited to bring it to YOU with a short film that recaps just a few of the #Blair100 Centennial events.
The WV Mine Wars Museum led a 3-year planning process for the #Blair100 Centennial Commemoration. If these stories resonate with you, help us keep telling them!
