The Newark “Holy Stones”: Science, Politics, and Religion in 19th Century Ohio

The “Holy Stones” are a series of carved and polished stones bearing Hebrew inscriptions, said to have been found in the ancient mounds near Newark, Ohio in the 1860s. They were seized upon by those who believed “savage” Indians could not have built Ohio’s mounds, but have been considered frauds since the late 1800s. However, some enthusiasts have recently claimed they might be authentic. What are the “Holy Stones?” Are they evidence of pre-Columbian visitations by ancient Hebrews? If they are clever frauds, what were the perpetrators’ motives?

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.
