Friends of Blair Mountain

Friends of Blair Mountain | Working to preserve Blair Mountain:

Please check out the updated website for Friends of Blair Mountain. They are trying to save this historic landscape from destruction by mountaintop removal mining.

"Blair Mountain in Logan County, West Virginia, was the site of the largest open class war in U.S. history. In 1921, after a generation of violent suppression and exploitation of the people in the southern coalfields of WV, 15,000 coal miners rebelled in an attempt to overthrow the control of coal barons."
