    years ago - a great novel that deals with the WV miners' struggles and the Battle of Blair Mountain - I highly recommend it.  I also recommend the film, Matewan, by John Sayles.

    Thank you for this diary.  I've recc'd it and will visit the Friends of Blair Mountain to see what I can do to help.  

    It is particularly important, given the recent mining tragedies in West Virginia, that we not lose this symbol of the bravery and determination of union miners to improve their working conditions.

    I hope that this diary gets rescued.
