|Logan Vinderlic's "Jerkwater Town" |
music video debut was yesterday.
Many people do not realize US Government Officials approved the bombing of its own citizen's, the West Virginia miners, during the 1921 Battle of Blair Mountain in Logan County. You will not find much about it in the history books and thankfully between bad weather and ineptness the biplanes did not inflict serious casualties to the miners (for more information Google search The Battle of Matewan, The Battle of Blair Mountain and Don Chafin. And for a great movie I recommend the 1987 John Sayles film “Matewan”.). This is our history and it has helped mold and shape every family with a long West Virginia heritage…including my own (The Rawson’s and the Taylor’s).
