|Goldenseal magazine has published some of
the best articles ever written on this historic period. Authors Lon
Savage, Lois McLean, Topper Sherwood and others write of the
larger-than-life figures - Sid Hatfield, Mother Jones, Bill
Blizzard, C.E. Lively, Don Chafin and more - who populated this
colorful era. Their stories take us from the governor's office in
Charleston to the barricades and machine gun nests of Paint Creek
and Cabin Creek, the bullet-riddled tents of Holly Grove and Lick
Creek, and the bloody steps of the McDowell County courthouse.
Eyewitnesses from both sides recall the days when gunfire echoed
along the New River and Tug Fork and when men fell dead by the
railroad tracks at Matewan.
