1917 / COPPER! - WWI and the War on Labor
100 years ago U.S. history changed dramatically. With the US entry into World War I powerful Copper Barons carried out an organized assault on Unions in the mine fields of the West. This was especially true in the copper mines of Montana and Arizona. Enflamed by the tragic North Butte MT mining disaster, copper miners walked out in a massive strike, culminating in the infamous Bisbee AZ Deportation. Heroism and tragedy, agitation and lynching, solidarity and the copper collar – it’s an adventurous centennial story, eerily relevant to the pro-business and anti-immigrant politics of today, told in historical narratives, powerpoint images and original songs.
