Blair Mountain

(NYT31) BLAIR, W. Va. — May 14, 2005 — W.VA-MOUNTAIN-2 — A historical marker describes the Battle of Blair Mountain near Logan, West Virginia, as pictured, May 12, 2005. Today, a new battle for Blair Mountain is flaring. But this time, the warriors are not miners toting rifles, but historians armed with artifacts. And the fight is not about organizing the coalfields, but saving the battlefield. (Tony Kemp/The New York Times)
