March 22, 1921
CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE, March 22, 1921
* Sid Hatfield & others not guilty
* Battle of Matewan WV fame
The top of page 6 has a one column heading: "16 MINERS, TRIED FOR DEATHS OF 7 SLEUTHS, FREED" with subhead. (see) First report coverage on the acquittal of William Sidney 'Sid' Hatfield, police chief of Matewan, and others in West Virginia. He would be killed in a shootout later that year.
Complete with all 30 pages, light toning and a little wear at the margins, should be handled with care.
