This year marked the 100th anniversary of the Ludlow Massacre. It’s been a year of events, memorials, services, and all sorts of activities. On May 18th, the Centennial Commemoration and Remembrance was held.
As to be expected, there was a heavy Union presence. This point in history was a turning point in labor relations. We had UMWA members from all over the country present. It was a good day. After a number of speeches, songs and shared emotions, there was a barbecue lunch and commemorative medals. Dan and I each got one.
After the event, we drove up the canyon and visited the memorial at the Hastings Mine. We continued on up Delagua canyon and got home around 5pm.
