On the morning that the bodies [the bodies of 66 men, women, and children who were killed for striking from their coal-mining jobs] were discovered in the tent pit at Ludlow [in Colorado], American warships were attacking Vera Cruz, a city on the coast of Mexico--bombarding it, occupying it, leaving a hundred Mexicans dead--because Mexico had arrested American sailors and refused to apologize to the United States with a twenty-one-gun salute.
