100 years ago U.S. history changed dramatically as the Government entered the European War and the Corporations escalated their war on Labor.  With the coming of World War I and the organized assault of powerful corporations this battle was waged 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 mining disaster and culminating in the infamous Bisbee Deportation.  Heroism and tragedy, agitation and lynching, solidarity and the copper collar – it’s an adventurous story, told in historical narratives, powerpoint images and songs.
