Blair Mountain is a historical site of  The Battle of Blair Mountain– a standoff that was the largest labour uprising in US history. Yet this beautiful site is endangered (like alot of mountains) of the onslaught of the Coal Companies, and what will lead to Mountaintop Removal.

An organization, The Friends of Blair Mountain has rallied against this horrid case of disregard for not only the environment, but history. In 2009, Blair Mountain was taken off the National Register of Historic Places, leaving it a step closer to the devastation another coal mine will bring to this mountain.
