The Greatest Generation...

This video takes place in the Pittsburgh Coal fields.

So this is what it was like to be a miner during those times. Actually, my grandpa first entered the mines around Clay County Kentucky with his older brother when he was just seven years old...around 1930. Pap was born in 1923.
