The mine wars were much more divisive of our people than any so-called "feud." It was as bad as the Civil War in that respect-or worse. Most of my ancestors were on the union side. Had I been there, I would have sided with the UMWA. Not the rotten organization of today-the old UMWA of 1020; but some of the best men of that generation were on the other side. They were patriots-grandsons of men who fought in Mr. Lincoln's army--who really thought that the union was a subversive organization that would overthrow the government. The shooting of Uncle Ancie while he dozed in a chair in the vestibule of his hotel-after he appeared before the grand jury and before the trial-shows that all the right was not on one side. His death is a continuing testimony that the whole truth never came out. omment_id=484808238263385&offset=0&total_comments=37 -------------------------------------------------------------------
