Ludlow Press Release


Nimbus tells the story of the bloodiest conflict in American Labor History

October 19, 2017

The year is 1913. Progress runs on coal, but the immigrant miners from southern Colorado are being squeezed beyond endurance. They work the seam while corporate forces arrayed against them spy, manipulate and disrupt, crushing any hint of “union.” Yet the workers and their families lean on one another, wait, hope…and plan.

 

How far will the company go? When will the pawns realize that together they are strong? But the chess board squares are all coal black in Las Animas County, near the River of the Lost Souls in Purgatory. And the flames are getting closer.

 

Nimbus brings you the fearsome saga of the Ludlow massacre, the deadliest labor dispute in American history.
