Union organizer and community activist Mary Harris “Mother” Jones is laid to rest on December 8, 1930 in Mount Olive, Ill. Considered by some to be the most dangerous woman in America for her ability to organize mine workers and their families against mine owners, she developed a loyal following. Her last wish was to be buried with her “boys,” three miners who were killed in the 1898 Battle of Virden, in the Union Miners’ Cemetery in Mount Olive. Survivors of the Virden incident served as honorary pallbearers. Click here to purchase a print.
