Today in labor history, August 31, 1921:  The Battle of Blair Mountain in southern West Virginia is underway between upwards of 7,000 coal miners and the private militias employed by the coal companies to crush organizing by the United Mine Workers of America.  The battle lasted for five days until President Warren G. Harding sent in federal forces, at which point most of the miners surrendered.  The miners’ leaders were tried for insurrection and treason, legal fees all but bankrupted the union, and organizing in the coalfields halted until 1933.
