Which Side Are You On is a song written in 1931 by Florence Reece, the wife of Sam Reece, a union organizer for the United Mine Workers in Harlan County, Kentucky. In 1931, the miners and the mine owners in southeastern Kentucky were locked in a bitter and violent struggle called the Harlan County War. In an attempt to intimidate the family of union leader Sam Reece, Sheriff J. Blair and his men, hired by the mining company, illegally entered their home in search of Reece. Reece had been warned. This is a 1941 recording of Which Side Are You On, performed by the Almanac Singers. In 1931, the miners and the mine owners of that region were locked in a violent struggle Harlan County War.
