Thread Name: coal mining songs
Subject: coal mining songs
I'm writing a curriculum for one of my classes that revolves around the historical coal mining culture of West Virginia. I'm mainly focasing on life in the mines up to and during the union wars. I want to find songs that are about and were written during this era. I don't know much about the history myself so any anecdotes, stories, comments and reflections would also be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
