This week in class, we’re reading "The Coeur d'Alene Miners' Uprising" by Various authors.

In "The Coeur d'Alene Miner's Uprising," two newspaper articles detail the 1892 Idaho miner's strike over unfair labor practices that left five people dead.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Justice, Freedom & Equality, Morality, and Social Change & Revolution as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :
