Colorado Experience: Ludlow Massacre
 
28:22
One of the most significant events in the struggle for labor laws in America played out in Las Animas County in the spring of 1914. With the control of much of Colorado's coal mines in the hands of just a few companies, miners grew increasingly intolerant of low wages and dangerous working conditions. Despite efforts to suppress union activity, the United Mine Workers of America called a strike in September of 1913. Over the next few months, tensions escalated as the striking miners ransacked several mines. The dispute culminated in a violent clash on April 20, 1914. Despite this tragic outcome, the event sparked national outrage and led the way of workers' rights in America.

Eagle Mine Colorado
 
11:54
Eagle Mine was a Colorado silver mine founded in the 1880s which went on to become the the largest producer of Silver in Colorado. It shut down in the 1980s. The closure of the mine resulted in its eventual flooding, which in turn contaminated the groundwater and prompted the EPA to step in and order the evacuation of the nearby town. In this video we explore some of the remaining surface structures. NOTE: I apologize for the quality of this video. We hiked down the side of the cliff and ran out of water along the way. I was exhausted and the lens got dirty in the process. I've identified some changes I'll be implementing in upcoming videos regarding sound and video quality. Stay tuned.

COLORADO HISTORY SERIES #10:  Walsen Power Plant
 
00:57
COLORADO HISTORY SERIES #10: Walsen Power Plant (9.14.2018) The Walsen Power Plant was built in 1898, to support coal mining operations in the area. It used to provide electrical power for the Walsen Mine, Walsen Camp and the town of Walsenburg. The Plant closed in 1971, due to advance nets in cleaner energy technology. Fifty years of being abandoned has led to massive vandalism, theft, and environmental breakdown of the facility. In 2009, the Walsen Power Plant was listed as on of the Most Endangered Places in Colorado. THANK YOU FOR WATCHING!

Killing for Coal: Thomas G. Andrews
 
02:44
On a spring morning in 1914, in the stark foothills of southern Colorado, members of the United Mine Workers of America clashed with guards employed by the Rockefeller family, and a state militia beholden to Colorado’s industrial barons. When the dust settled, nineteen men, women, and children among the miners’ families lay dead. The strikers had killed at least thirty men, destroyed six mines, and laid waste to two company towns. Killing for Coal offers a bold and original perspective on the 1914 Ludlow Massacre and the “Great Coalfield War.” In a sweeping story of transformation that begins in the coal beds and culminates with the deadliest strike in American history, Thomas Andrews illuminates the causes and consequences of the militancy that erupted in colliers’ strikes over the course of nearly half a century. He reveals a complex world shaped by the connected forces of land, labor, corporate industrialization, and workers’ resistance. Brilliantly conceived and written, this book takes the organic world as its starting point. The resulting elucidation of the coalfield wars goes far beyond traditional labor history. Considering issues of social and environmental justice in the context of an economy dependent on fossil fuel, Andrews makes a powerful case for rethinking the relationships that unite and divide workers, consumers, capitalists, and the natural world.

Redstone Coke Ovens
 
00:55
The historical plaque reads, in part; "These 'Beehive' coke ovens were constructed in the late 1890's to carbonize or 'coke' coal mined in coal basin for the Colorado Fuel and Iron Company." "Coke is made when special coals are heated to drive off volatile matter and moisture in the absence of oxygen. Coal was charged into these ovens from the top and after charging the ovens were sealed for 48 hours except for a small amount of air which was admitted to support enough combustion to maintain a coking temperature. As the finished coke was withdrawn from the ovens it was quenched with water to prevent further combustion."

Kirstin Brown - 2015 San Juan Mining and Reclamation Conference, Telluride, CO
 
25:15
BOSTON COAL MINE PROJECT Kirstin Brown, Colorado Division of Reclamation, Mining and Safety Reclamation Specialist/Geologist The Boston Coal Mine Project is located at the Boston Mine site in Lightner Creek on the flanks of Perin's Peak in La Plata County, 5 miles from Durango, Colorado. The Boston Mine is located on Colorado Parks and Wildlife property that is managed as a protected state wildlife area. The goal of the project was to reduce erosion from the Boston Mine Site through revegetation and erosion control. By reclaiming the land, the site was returned to native vegetation for wildlife while reducing erosion and maintaining the historic character of the site. The Boston Project enlisted the cooperation and assistance of many agencies and non-profit groups, such as Mountain Studies Institute, Southwest Conservation Corps, Fort Lewis College, Colorado Parks and Wildlife, City of Durango, and Office of Surface Mining, innovative dry-land reclamation techniques, shared by the New Mexico Abandoned Mined Land Program, were adapted to the Boston Mine site. The reclamation focus was shifted from large scale revegetation by the acre to small scale revegetation. Reclamation was designed by the square foot, with care taken to leave any pre-existing vegetation intact in the fragile desert environment. Much of the revegetation and soil amendment was done by hand, especially on the steep slopes of the coal waste pile. The result is reclaimed coal waste piles and adjacent land with 60% tree and shrub success and native vegetation stabilizing the steeps slopes and coal waste piles, benefitting the local wildlife and preserving the rich coal mining history in Durango, Colorado.

Colorado School of Mines Geology Museum - The View out the Window
 
10:00
This animation, titled "The View from our Window", shows the geologic history of Golden, Colorado as seen through a large picture window in the Colorado School of Mines Geology Museum. The video was developed for the visitors to museum to illustrate how the geology of the Golden area changed through geologic time when looking north from the window. Version 1 was displayed in the museum in early 2006; this version was significantly upgraded with version 2 (shown here) in November 2013. The video is designed to introduce and complement the Geology Walking Trail on campus. Video illustrates: (1) the formation of Precambrian metamorphic rocks (1.8 Ga); (2) latest Cretaceous delta plain and forest (68 Ma); (3) eruption of Table Mountain basalt (64 Ma); (4) erosion of the Golden area (14 Ma to present), (5) White Ash Coal Mine, and (6) the walking geology trail through the Upper Cretaceous outcrops in the clay pits. Video by James Adson, Joseph Rogers, Eric Lobato, Jay Austin, Paul Weimer, and Paul Bartos.

Ludlow Massacre // Colorado 2009 // Sam Phillips Interview With Film Makers
 
05:32
Was on Tour With The Band Hobo Monk..and as we were driving We ran into Ludlow ..Said a Prayer and this film Makers ask to interview me..then i found out later that it was to become a historic landmark the next day. Funny How The Universe works sometimes........... The Ludlow Massacre was an attack by the Colorado National Guard and Colorado Fuel & Iron Company camp guards on a tent colony of 1,200 striking coal miners and their families at Ludlow, Colorado on April 20, 1914. The massacre resulted in the violent deaths of between 19 and 25 people; sources vary but all sources include two women and eleven children, asphyxiated and burned to death under a single tent. The deaths occurred after a daylong fight between militia and camp guards against striking workers. Ludlow was the deadliest single incident in the southern Colorado Coal Strike, lasting from September 1913 through December 1914. The strike was organized by the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA) against coal mining companies in Colorado. The three largest companies involved were the Rockefeller family-owned Colorado Fuel & Iron Company (CF&I), the Rocky Mountain Fuel Company (RMF), and the Victor-American Fuel Company (VAF). In retaliation for Ludlow, the miners armed themselves and attacked dozens of mines over the next ten days, destroying property and engaging in several skirmishes with the Colorado National Guard along a 40-mile front from Trinidad to Walsenburg.[1] The entire strike would cost between 69 and 199 lives. Thomas Franklin Andrews described it as the "deadliest strike in the history of the United States".[2] The Ludlow Massacre was a watershed moment in American labor relations. Historian Howard Zinn described the Ludlow Massacre as "the culminating act of perhaps the most violent struggle between corporate power and laboring men in American history".[3] Congress responded to public outcry by directing the House Committee on Mines and Mining to investigate the incident.[4] Its report, published in 1915, was influential in promoting child labor laws and an eight-hour work day. The Ludlow site, 12 miles (19 km) northwest of Trinidad, Colorado, is now a ghost town. The massacre site is owned by the UMWA, which erected a granite monument in memory of the miners and their families who died that day.[5] The Ludlow Tent Colony Site was designated a National Historic Landmark on January 16, 2009, and dedicated on June 28, 2009.[5] Modern archeological investigation largely supports the strikers' reports of the event.[
