Item # 647256
August 27, 1921
THE NEW YORK TIMES, August 27, 1921
* Battle of Blair Mountain
* Logan County, West Virginia
The front page has a one column heading: "REVOLT REPORTED AFTER MINGO TRUCE" with subheads that include: "Miners Rebel After Acceding to Leaders' Order to Halt, and Seize a Train" and more. (see) First report coverage on the beginning of the Battle of Blair Mountain in the coal regions of West Virginia. Nice headline for display. Lengthy text continues inside. Always nice to have notable events in history reported in this World famous publication.
Other news, sports and advertisements of the day. Complete in 18 pages, light toning, minor margin wear, generally nice.
