I've driven by the signs that point to the Ludlow Massacre many times over the years but this time decided to stop to learn about a time in history I knew nothing about. I found a memorial site out in the middle of nowhere that described the attack and massacre on a tent colony of 1,200 striking coal miners and their families at Ludlow. Approx 26 men, women and children were murdered by the Colorado National Guard and Colorado Fuel & Iron Company. The workers were primarily striking due to poor wages and work conditions. Free to check out one of the many sad moments in American history. Recommended
