Welcome to Ludlow and the story about the Children. 

In the early 1900s, the coal miners went on strike for rights, increased pay, and better living arrangements. The efforts of these miners led to the change in wages, rights, and housing, which we have today. The changes hit Colorado the most, leading to a series of violent skirmishes and the loss of life.

The company that had the most to lose in Colorado was Colorado Fuel & Iron Company (CF&I). Rockefeller Jr. and Sr. did not see a problem in the mines and ignored petitions which were brought to their attention. This is the story of the children and families of the Ludlow community.
