We first visited the Ludlow site in the 1980's. The last few years, my wife kept saying we need to stop again and that we did on this trip through Colorado. We noted some changes over the last 30 years, and were sad to learn of the vandalism a few years back. I would say that the current setting offers a good explanation of what you are visiting and that the Union members have taken great pride in keeping this story alive.
The historical part itself is a sad moment in time, but unfortunately not an isolated incident. My wife's grandfather was a Pennsylvania coal miner and brought up a family of ten in some very trying conditions over 100 years ago. It was the efforts of these early miners and union members that produced the 40 hour work week with a lunch break and a rest break. It is sad that this site honors women, children, and miners who were murdered for standing up for what was right,

A very important piece of history. It should be on everyone's to do list if you are traveling that way. It offers a lot of good information. It explains what lead to the massacre, the massacre itself, and then what happened afterwards in the country as it relates to workers rights.

This important monument needs to seen by all who work for a living. The mindsets of the psychopathic persons responsible for this violence, are STILL with us. This mentalily, of those who killed innocents, seemingly morphed into real estate brokers and land developers, along with the banksters who fund them. And these modern day greedy jerks are who OWN our lives today.

For some reason, we had a hard time finding this. Be sure to consult a map. A very beautiful memorial. Worth the stop.

It can be tempting to bypass small, out-of-the-way historical sites, but this one is definitely worth taking the time to track down. We took our time and were very impressed with the site. I wish I had brought my kids there when they we're younger.
