Coal Creek TN: The "Fraterville Mine Explosion"

        It was on one Monday morning,
        On the nineteenth of May;
        Near 200 miners round us,
        Left their homes and marched away.
All 184 trapped died-5/19/1902; George Korson, Coal Dust on the Fiddle (This isn't the event of "Coal Creek March" or of "Payday." Lots of fun stuff happened in Coal Creek.)

        ALSO:

        Shut up in the mines of Coal Creek,
        And I know that I will have to die.
        Go tell my wife and children
        That I'm prepared to die.

                "Shut up in the Mines at Coal Creek," Hedy West on Old Times & Hard
                Times
; collected by her father while in jail.
