In 1920, union members set up camps for homeless miners outside of the Stone Mountain Coal Company mines, but two detectives were sent out to evict the workers at gunpoint. In the event later known as the Matewan Massacre, a gunfight erupted by the policeman Sid Hatfield (who was sympathetic to the miners’ cause) and the detectives who had illegally evicted the homeless workers.
