Object Description
Photograph of a tall stone monument honoring the memory of the victims of the Ludlow Massacre, April, 20, 1914 in Ludlow, Colorado. The monument appears to be at least 10 feet tall.  It has a square base, tall square body and a crown or top with dentil moulding underneath it.  Directly underneath the dentil moulding, a scalloped garland relief wraps around the top of the main section of the monument.  The focal point of the monument is a black plaque with gold lettering that lists the names of the victims of this massacre.  Green trees and blue sky in the background.
Origin
Louis Tikas was a 26 year old Cretan who was leading a strike in the Colorado coal fields when he and 16 others including 13 women and children were murdered by what is known as the Ludlow Massacre on April 20, 1914. This massacre was carried out by the Colorado National Guard and Colorado Fuel & Iron Company camp guards.
