(6573) Strikes, Coal Mine Strike, Terra Haute, Indiana, 1932

Caption from the back on the photograph reads: “Members of the Indiana national guard air corps unloading ammunition and tear gas shells and bombs consigned to national guard troops who moved in to Terre Haute, IN, Aug. 3, to relieve the besieged 65 workmen in the Dixie Bee Coal Mine. The arrival of additional state militia planes forced the union pickets to abandon their two-day siege of the non-union workers.”
