In 1902, the nation was paralyzed by a labor dispute in five counties of northeast Pennsylvania, long a cauldron of ethnic violence and simmering social tensions. The strike occasioned a bitter confrontation between the powerful coal companies led by George Baer and the United Mine Workers led by a 28-year-old John Mitchell. President Theodore Roosevelt and J.P. Morgan, the titan of Wall Street, were only two of the colorful characters in the controversy. Represented by Clarence Darrow, Mitchell’s long-suffering coal miners set precedents in labor relations that continue to resonate today.
