Join the Lafayette Historical Society as it marks the 100th anniversary of the Ludlow Massacre with a program about one of the blackest chapters in Colorado mining history.
One hundred years ago on April 20, 1914 a tent colony of striking coal miners and their families were attacked by members of the Colorado National Guard and Colorado Fuel & Iron Company camp guards. Thirty-nine people were killed. Ludlow was the deadliest single incident in the Southern Colorado Coal Strike that lasted from September 1913 until December 1914
The program will be in the meeting room on the lower level of the Lafayette Public Library. It is free and open to the public. Donations are gladly accepted and light refreshments will be served. Click on the link below for more information.
