We placed this major marker and exhibit at the Coalfield Rest Area in 2018. It profiles Mother Jones and the history of a 1933 march to Springfield by women inspired by Mother Jones. See the website/free app from Vamonde for more details. It includes performance, photos and documentary materials. Below that, check out the dedication photos .
