This period of national guard history was typified by turbulent social and economic unrest, and the guard had to keep peace between striking miners and mine security guards. Many of these photographs are from the collection of the late Fred Cochran of Parkersburg, West Virginia. He was an officer in Company E, 2nd West Virginia National Guard and his photographs offer an insight to these early days.
