1897- In the Lattimer Massacre , a sheriff's posse kills more than nineteen unarmed immigrant miners in Pennsylvania.
The Lattimer Massacre was an incident in which a sheriff's posse killed nineteen unarmed immigrant miners and wounded scores more. On 10 September 1897 at the Lattimer mine near Hazelton, PA, men under the authority of the Luzerne Cty sheriff fired on a peaceful labor demonstration made up of mostly POlish, Slovak, and Lithuanian anthracite miners. This incident stands not only as the largest massacre of Central Europeans in the US, but also as a turning point in the American labor movement.
