    ancestors are rolling in their graves for what has happened with the Unions.  It wasn't 100 years ago that the Italian Hall Christmas Eve Fire took place in Calumet/Laurium during the Copper Mine Strike.

      performed by Jack Eliot.

      My mom was born (1920) and raised near Calumet. Our family owned a set of stereoscopic slides documenting this strike-breaking tragedy. I recognize some of those photos in this video.
