Class Conflict at the Ludlow Massacre Site, Southeastern Colorado, Presented by Dr. Dean Saitta- University of Denver

On the morning of April 20, 1914, Colorado National Guard troops opened fire on a tent colony of 1,200 striking coal miners at Ludlow, Colorado.  The troops continued shooting until late afternoon, then swept through the camp looting it and setting it aflame.  When the smoke cleared twenty of the camps inhabitants were dead including two women and eleven children.   The “Ludlow Massacre” was the most important event of the 1913-1914 Colorado Coal Field War.  However, most Americans know nothing about it.  This talk describes the first-ever excavations of the Ludlow Tent Colony and what we’ve learned from them.  It also discusses our involvement in winning Ludlow’s 2009 designation as a National Historical Landmark.  This watershed development testifies to what can happen when historians, archaeologists, and citizens make common cause to commemorate events that are often neglected by official American history.
