Ludlow, Colorado: Company guards & the National Guard attack miners striking Rockerfeller's Colorado Fuel & Coal Co. on Easter Night, 4/20/1914. 74 died, including 11 children.

        It was early springtime that the strike was on
        They moved us miners out of doors
        Out from the houses that the company owned
        We moved into tents at old Ludlow.

        You struck a match and the blaze it started
        You pulled the triggers of your guns
        I made a run for the children but the fire wall stopped me
        Thirteen children died from your guns.

        "Ludlow Massacre" (Woody Guthrie); DigTrad filename[ LUDLWMAS
