Petition Congress for a Miners' Day
Letter No. 334 | February 13, 2009
I've been reading Charlie Metro's book [Safe by a Mile] and enjoying some of the limited background on Nanty Glo and what it was like for him during the 1930s & 40s...glad that's on the website!
If you would, could you perhaps consider adding this link for the petition to congress for a National Miner's Day holiday? Here is the link...(PS - this is legitimate and supported by West Virginia's Favorite Son and author Homer Hickam (you may have seen his story in the movie October Sky or read his books about growing up in Coalwood, W.Va.).
Webmaster's reply: I have signed the petition and sent the offered emails to my members of congress. I hope others will join us. jon
