Mister Hamlin's List

Cripple Creek, 1904.  Gold and liquor flow freely.  Conflict underlies the wealth as surely as gold underlies the town.  Mine owners have a list of preferred employees.  If your name isn't on Hamlin's list, you can't work at many mines.

The Western Federation of Miners is on strike.  The usual back and forth is overshadowed by fatal explosions set off, apparently by someone sympathetic to the Union.  The Militia is called in to Cripple Creek, again.   Repercussions and retribution rock the gold camp.
