Mother Jones Monument – Union Miners Cemetery Tour

Mother Jones Monument – Union Miners Cemetery Tour

While she often said that “my home is my shoes” Mother Jones stayed in Illinois frequently on her travels across the United States from the 1890s to the 1920s.

Learn about “the most dangerous woman in America,” and why she chose this as her final resting place through smartphone apps (and coming soon) a virtual e-book.

We offer this tour on the Vamonde app and TheClio App, both free. Vamonde offers a bit more dynamic material at all of the stops, so please consider that option if you have a smartphone. You do not have to share your information with either of these apps; just opt out. They are also viewable on a web platform, though both are best experienced on site. The Vamonde app includes performance of Mother Jones’ speeches and autobiography, songs, poetry, and over 50 photos, an audio documentary.  A virtual tour and e-book are also coming soon.
