Some of the acting crew of the Matewan Massacre are pictured here. The actors portray the participants and spectators at the Matewan Massacre, which was a shootout in the town of Matewan, on May 19, 1920, between local miners and the Baldwin-Felts Detective Agency. Several volunteers have formed a group to re-enact the event. Local historian Eric Simon plays the part of Police Chief Sid Hatfield. Donna Paterino is one of the group’s leaders who is hoping to get an amphitheater built in Matewan.
