      If you are here reading about this project, please consider donating even $1. The West Virginia Mine Wars are an important part of American history. The story of labor strife in West Virginia, in the copper mines of Michigan, in the copper and sliver mines of Montana, almost anywhere miners struggled is a story that must be told over and over to counteract the apathy of some, and the antipathy of others toward a noble movement with noble goals.
