Pennsylvania Coal Miners' Day

Post by Biff83 » 17 Dec 2007, 18:16

This Wednesday, 19 December, will mark the first Pennsylvania Coal Miners' Day introduced and passed this year in the Commonwealth's Legislature. The day will honor all those who labored in the mines and contributed so much to the nation's economy through their blood, sweat and tears, particularly the 51,509 Pennsylvania anthracite and bituminous miners who lost their lives on the job from 1870 to the present.
