The Glory of Solidarity and Fraternity

In Sept. 1864, while Atlanta smoldered, the first use
of military force to allay labor unrest in the West
occurred when Governor J. W. Nye ordered 2 companies
of cavalry from Fort Churchill to end a strike by
the Story County Miner’s League. The Unions of the
Comstock believed they were essential components in
a successful industrial economy. The Virginia City
Miner’s Union was a vital part of local society and
respected for their efforts to help disabled
mineworkers, the widow and the orphan.
