An Episode In Colorado Labor Wars

In the heat of Colorado’s bitterly contested Long Strike of 1910-1914, a strike breaker and the town marshal of Superior, CO, faced off on the platform of the town’s train station. One of them lay mortally wounded on the platform only to die the next morning.

Presenter: Chairman of the Superior Historical Commission, Larry Dorsey, is a long-time resident of Boulder County, is a retired history teacher from the Boulder Valley School District and is a trustee at the Colorado Railroad Museum in Golden. Larry has presented the History of Colorado Railroads at previous lectures and his presentations are always interesting.
