Description

By Leo L. Ward and Mark T. Major

Schuylkill County is located in east central Pennsylvania in the rich southern fields of anthracite coal. The era when “coal was king” has long since passed, but the story of the development of the anthracite coal industry that fueled the Industrial Revolution in the U.S. has not been lost.

The vivid details and nuances of local community life from the 1850s to the 1920s are brought to light in this wonderful collection.
