These National Guard soldiers are standing by a tent near the coal mines. On November 1, 1919, over 10,000 coal miners went on strike in southeast Kansas for a six-hour day, five-day work week, and a 60 percent wage raise. When the strike occurred the state had only a two week supply of coal. The state took charge of the mines, arbitrated futilely, and then called for 1,000 volunteers to replace the miners. During November and December 10,000 college and ex-service men responded. Governor Henry J. Allen and the Kansas National Guard, Fourth Regiment reported for duty as well. The strike ended on December 10, 1919, and the miners were ordered back to work.
