  Genus Gastonia
Gastonia was an armored herbivore (plant-eater) that lived in North America during the early Cretaceous period, about 125 million years ago.

Gastonia was about 15 to 20 feet (4.5 to 6 meters) long, and weighed around 1 ton. It was protected by armor, most noteably its shoulder spikes. However, since fossils are usually found disarticulated, it is hard to know how many spikes each individual animal had.

Product Description:
Of the wave of labor strikes that swept through the South in 1929, the one at the Loray Mill in Gastonia, North Carolina, is perhaps the best remembered. In Gastonia 1929 John Salmond provides the first detailed account of the complex events surrounding the strike at the largest textile mill in the Southeast. His compelling narrative unravels the confusing story of the shooting of the town's police chief, the trials of the alleged killers, the unsolved murder of striker Ella May Wiggins, and the strike leaders' conviction and subsequent flight to the Soviet Union. Describing the intensifying climate of violence in the region, Salmond presents the strike within the context of the southern vigilante tradition and as an important chapter in American economic and labor history in the years after World War I. He draws particular attention to the crucial role played by women as both supporters and leaders of the strike, and he highlights the importance of race and class issues in the unfolding of events.

Product Description:
Located west of the Catawba River in the fertile North Carolina Piedmont, Gaston County brims with neighborly people and majestic vistas. With the advent of railroads in a Reconstructed South, the county united from High Shoals to Crowders Mountain and from Mount Holly to Bessemer City. Gastonia Station was born at the crossroads, and by 1910 the city's economy thrived and its population boomed. In 1926, Gaston residents again embraced progress as they witnessed the completion of the state's first four-lane highway through the area. While it eased the crowded trains and trolleys, the boulevard, now known as Franklin, would forever alter the rural landscape.

Product Description:
Union organizer and balladeer Ella May became a martyr for workers nationwide when she was murdered on her way to a union meeting in Gastonia, North Carolina, at age 28. A mother of nine and bookkeeper for the communist-led National Textile Workers Union, May worked to organize fellow mill workers in Gaston County. Her efforts to organize black workers--along with her brash, outspoken manner--incensed the local community and she was shot by an anti-union vigilante group on September 14, 1929.

Written by her great-granddaughter, this book tells Ella May's story, including her involvement in the Loray Mill Strike, the largest communist-led strike on American soil. Her most famous ballad, "Mill Mother's Lament," reveals her motivation: "It is for our little children."
