Maybe you'll see this story told in a movie one day: Coal miners display bombs dropped by the govt of United States on its own citizens during the Battle of Blair Mountain, the largest armed uprising in the US after the Civil War. "For five days in 1921, in Logan County, West Virginia, between 10-15k coal miners confronted an army of 30k police and strikebreakers backed by coal operators." Battle ended after about a million rounds, with United States Army intervening by Presidential Order.
