Lattimer Massacre Project

And now a blog about a dark incident in Northeastern Pennsylvania's history. One of many.

From the "About" page:

The Lattimer Massacre Project is a collaborative endeavor which aims to recognize the historic events surrounding the Lattimer massacre, a tragic incident that changed the labor movement and impacted the world by bringing to light economic disparities and ethnic tensions in the anthracite region of Pennsylvania.

This is a way for the public to make the Lattimer massacre recognized by national and international audiences, through contributions from all the communities involved. We welcome photos, stories, history, maps, website links and anything else you would like to add to the Lattimer Massacre story, relaying to the broader public its place in history.
