From the Publisher"During an economic depression period the strong trade union of the United Mineworkers of Alabama was founded [and] became instrumental in the 1894 coal miners' (and railway workers') strike. The particular conditions under which the strike was started and carried on are vividly recalled in this book. . . . Connected issues are the racial problem (Negroes were employed as strike-breakers) and the struggle between the Bourbon Democrats and the Populists. . . . Most valuable."
—International Review of Social History
"Written with economy, clarity, and even a certain amount of grace. . . . Ward and Rogers have handled a difficult research problem successfully. [Their book] will stand as the final word on the Alabama miners' strike of 1894."
