Very well done and incredibly informative. Thank you so much for taking the time to create and share this video.
My Grandfather Franklin P. Smith worked in the Coal Creek mine.
How very sad!
the letters are heart rending. god bless their souls.
Your almost in the wrong area. I can take you directly to the mine shaft. it is not private property to get there. There is more ways to get to it. In this video you are about 100 yards from the entrance that will take you there. It is a public easement to the historical mine shaft. As I said in another comment, we need to hook up next time your in this area. Eddie....
I had no idea about this. Thank you for educating me. Very touching
I'm a forth Generation Miner I live in Va. but have a place near Morristown I'm glad you made this video. Because I new they mined in Tennessee but I had no ideal to what extent. My heart goes out to any Miner like your dad. Black lung took my dad many years ago. Thanks new sub.
