Historic Birmingham Mineral Railroad Trestle Remains At Blocton Coal Mines Area
 
04:46
A photo & video compilation of two trestle remains of the Louisville & Nashville Railroads Birmingham Mineral Railroad Division over sections of Caffee Creek near the Blocton Coal Mines. These trestle remains date back to the early 1900's when Tennessee Coal & Iron Company operated extensive deep coal mines and coke ovens around Blocton, Alabama. The Birmingham Mineral Railroad was one of several railroads that serviced the coal mines with freight and passenger service. The coal mines at Blocton ceased operations in the early 1950's. Most rail trestles and lines were dismantled years ago. Amazing that the wooden trestle spanning Caffee Creek survived.

A photo & video compilation taken of the historic Tennessee Coal & Iron Company's No.11 Red Ore Mine. This mine was originally called the Spring Gap Mine with mining operations dating back to the late 1880's. TCI acquired this mine in the early 1900's and renamed it No.11 and was part of the Ishkooda mining division. Mining operations ceased at this mine in the early 1960's when cheaper iron ore was imported from South America. Today the mine site is inside present day Red Mountain Park.

Historic Red Ore Mines Bath House
 
04:51
A photo & video compilation of Tennessee Coal Iron & Railroad Company's Historic Muscoda Red Ore Mines bath house facilities remains. This structure is one of the last remaining intact bath houses that was used by miners that were employed at TCI's Muscoda Division of red ore mines. In the early 1900's most mining company's in an effort to create a better working and sanitation environment for their employee built massive bath houses complete with washing and changing rooms so the miners could clean up and change into their street clothes after long shifts working deep underground in the mines. During the period of segregation all bath houses had separate entrances and facilities for white and colored employees. In 1956 TCI sold their Muscoda property to Woodward Iron Company. Woodward continued to operate the Muscoda Mines up into the late 1960's when they ceased operations their. Today this site resides on private property and can only be visited with express permission of the property owners. A no trespassing policy is strictly enforced by the owners.

The 50 Greatest Country Songs (1928-2000)
 
14:57
Country music is one of the most popular music genres of the 20th and 21st century. This video presents the highlights of the first five generations of country music. Though it originated in the 1920s, it still remains an important part of music. As usual, I used the trusty website "Dave's Music Database" as my source. If this video is well received, there will be a second part with 50 more country songs. Country music is a genre of American popular music that originated in Southern United States, in Atlanta, Georgia in the 1920s. It takes its roots from the southeastern genre of American folk music and Western music. Blues modes have been used extensively throughout its recorded history. Country music often consists of ballads and dance tunes with generally simple forms and harmonies accompanied by mostly string instruments such as banjos, electric and acoustic guitars, fiddles, and harmonicas. --Song list-- 1928 Wildwood Flower - The Carter Family 1935 Can the Circle Be Unbroken (Bye and Bye) - The Carter Family 1938 Wabash Cannonball - Roy Acuff & the Smoky Mountain Boys 1941 Walking the Floor Over You - Ernest Tubb 1949 I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry - Hank Williams 1949 Lovesick Blues - Hank Williams 1950 Faded Love - Bob Wills & His Texas Playboys 1950 I’m Moving On - Hank Snow 1951 Hey, Good Lookin’ - Hank Williams 1952 The Wild Side of Life - Hank Thompson 1952 It Wasn’t God Who Made Honky-Tonk Angels - Kitty Wells 1953 Your Cheatin’ Heart - Hank Williams 1955 Sixteen Tons - Tennessee Ernie Ford 1956 I Walk the Line - Johnny Cash 1956 Folsom Prison Blues - Johnny Cash 1956 Crazy Arms - Ray Price 1958 Oh Lonesome Me - Don Gibson 1959 He’ll Have to Go - Jim Reeves 1959 The Battle of New Orleans - Johnny Horton 1959 El Paso - Marty Robbins 1961 Hello Walls - Faron Young 1961 Crazy - Patsy Cline 1961 I Fall to Pieces - Patsy Cline 1962 I Can’t Stop Loving You - Ray Charles 1963 Act Naturally - Buck Owens 1963 Ring of Fire - Johnny Cash 1963 Sweet Dreams of You - Patsy Cline 1965 Make the World Go Away - Eddy Arnold 1965 King of the Road - Roger Miller 1968 Harper Valley P.T.A. - Jeannie C.

02:17
In the shadow of Paradise Fossil Plant's aging smokestacks, where white steam rises into the sky, outdated coal-fired generators are being replaced with a new, natural gas one. The change in Muhlenberg County, once the nation's top producer of coal, is emblematic of what's happening across the U.S. as natural gas becomes cheaper and electric utilities try to meet stiffer carbon emissions rules the Obama administration announced this week. When the $1 billion natural gas facility is finished in 2017, the Tennessee Valley Authority, the nation's largest public utility, will shut down two coal-burning units at Paradise that date to the 1960s. The Environmental Protection Agency says natural gas generators produce about half the carbon dioxide of coal-fired units, and a fraction of other harmful pollutants. Coal supplies about 90 percent of the electricity in Kentucky, and about 40 percent of the nation's power generation, compared with about 27 percent for natural gas. But the efficient gas technology wasn't being welcomed by everyone in the county, where the first coal seams were dug in the early 1900s and immortalized in John Prine's song "Paradise," with its lyrics: "Well, they dug for their coal till the land was forsaken, Then they wrote it all down as the progress of man." There's also sure to be some lost jobs at the Paradise plant when the new facility opens, since gas-fired generators need about a third of the workforce of a coal-burning unit. During a tour of the construction site Tuesday, Sabin said Paradise would need about 130 fewer employees when the two coal-burning units shut down, bringing the plant's total employment to about 210 workers. Sabin said the utility would work to find the displaced workers jobs at other sites. The TVA said this week that its system-wide carbon emissions are on track to be cut by 40 percent below 2005 levels by 2020. By that time, TVA's carbon emissions will be about half what they were at the 1995 peak.

Virginia Coal Mine Coke Ovens And Railroad Spur Line
 
07:45
A photo & video compilation made of the historic Virginia Coal Mine coke ovens site and the Birmingham Mineral Railroad spur line that connected to it. The Virginia Coal Mine was originally owned and operated by Gulf States Steel in the 1890's and later purchased by the Republic Steel Company in the early 1900's. The coal mine site has long since been wiped away but the coke ovens nearby are still accessible. The Louisville & Nashville Railroads Birmingham Mineral Division built a spur line to the coal mine in the 1890's off of its Blue Creek line to connect with it and transport the coal & coke to the blast furnaces at the Thomas Blast Furnace in Birmingham. Today the trestle remains can be seen on Johns Road in southwest Jefferson County and the trestle remains over Valley Creek are accessible during winter months. Hopefully more exploring can be done then of this historic site.

The coal mines
 
06:14
"There was no age limit during those days, So I started working in the coal mines when I was ten years old. I was a young boy in the lines of men with old and tired faces. We gave our names and they were turned to numbers. Once you are in, you can't walk away that easy. The profound black and hollowness of the mines eats you, The Scent consumes you, close to being suffocated. The taste leaves you dry, desiring water. Your eyes fill with ardor, and you become one of them; Absent of light and debilitated. Eventually you get used to ten hours of work everyday, but getting used to it does not mean that it brings a serenity. Basically you are a slave to them, with a pay that is barely for eating. It seems that instead of digging out dirt you just bury yourself in. "Where's the exit? we lost the exit" 34 Jesus answered them, Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin. 35 And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. 36 Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed." could this be included please... The idea in this video is to represent being trapped in sin as if you were to be trapped in a dark coal mine; The character wears a mask (to show that he is blind) and he walks while scenes (memories) of the coal mines flash. In his walk he picks up rocks, the rocks represent the burdens that we put on ourselves when we live our life in sin, and his walk is weak. The scene changes to the character being chained, begging for liberation, and saying "I remember your words, You said that whoever commits sin is a slave of sin, and a slave does not abide in your house but you abide forever. Therefore, if You make me free, I shall be free indeed"(John 8:34) After this the scenes of liberation appear, at the end the character throws the rocks away. (Once we're truly liberated we don't have those burdens anymore) We're all sinners and continue sinning, but living a life in sin is when we live without that remorse from the Spirit that leads us to cry to the Father for mercy and forgiveness. I think this is so beautiful from God because He has so much love and grace for us that even that remorse that we feel before we go to Him for forgiveness comes from Him, that is why when we have truly experienced a relationship with Christ we can not go back into our old ways and start sinning carelessly again. A genuine relationship with Jesus is desperately needed for every believer because going to church, saying you're christian, and living a good life is not enough. The scary part is that you could be going to church but that won't save you, your relationship with Jesus Christ will; a relationship that makes you feel like a real son of God ("a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever" John 8:35) This explains why many people leave church, they experience and live the religion but not the relationship. If you're not a believer but you feel like you need and want that liberation from the sovereign God, I encourage you to accept Jesus Christ in your heart and start a relationship with Him. If you're a believer but you still feel burdened, believe the word God ("if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed." John 8:36) and ask Jesus Christ to liberate you from those sins that hold you back from becoming the one that He wants you to be. Pray for strength and perseverance for this battle. I pray that this is helpful to someone and I am thankful that God uses Recverd as a tool to preach His word. May God bless you Feel free to contact me for any questions or prayer request.

Muscoda
 
08:33
A photo compilation taken of the historic Muscoda Red Ore Mine sites. These mines date back to the 1880's and were some of the largest and deepest mines in the Birmingham District. The Muscoda Mines numbered 1-6 along the north side of Red Mountain spanning Readers Gap and present day Highway 150. The Smith Mining Company operated the mines until the early 1900's when they were purchased by the Tennessee Coal & Iron Company (U.S. Steel). In 1956 Woodward Iron Company purchased the entire Muscoda mine complex to join with the company's deep shaft Pyne Red Ore Mine located to the south of Red Mountain. Mining operations continued until the 1960's when operations ceased at Muscoda. Today the mines are sealed and the property is privately owned. Many of the original buildings and structures are still intact and accessible. Please note that all of the property is privately owned and permission was obtained in order to explore the vast mining site.

TCI Ishkooda No 14 Red Ore Mine Hoist House Remains
 
12:58
Located in present day Red Mountain Park lay the remains of Tennessee Coal & Iron Company's Ishkooda No.14 Red Ore Mine hoist house, coal dock, ore crusher and tipple remains. The No.14 Mine was originally one of the Eureka Mines developed along Red Mountain in the 1870's making it one of the oldest mining operations in the Birmingham District. In the early 1900's the red ore loading operations were transferred from the south side of the mountain to the north side as deep slope mining commenced along with L&N Railroad completing their north branch spur lines along the mountain of their Birmingham Mineral Division. All the hoist house operations from the early 1900's up until the 1940's were steam powered meaning they had to have a large supply of coal on hand to operate the the gigantic steel cable hoists and to generate electrical power to the slope mines. In the late 1940's though all hoist house were finally converted to electrical power. When all the mining operations ceased along Red Mountain by 1961 years later TCI demolished all the hoist houses with the exception of the basement levels. In the last 60 years nature has reclaimed much of the site but park officials are making headway into creating some new trails to this site. As of now this area remains closed to the public and will hopefully open sometime in the near future.

To meet the growing demand for coal in the early 20th century, West Virginia companies needed more miners. African Americans mixed with European immigrants and native Appalachians in the mines and the coal towns. Coal operators felt that diversity would keep unionization at bay.

Coal Mining Song-Blood By The Ton 2010
 
03:03
Blood by The Ton by Stephen Davis written about a mine disaster in Eccles WV in the early 1900's. The photos in this video are all original. They are from our family who have all been touched by Coal mining. With the disaster last week it appears not much has changed over time. The miners are sacrificed for money as the big companies continue to avoid regulations and fines. They bury towns in sludge and lethal gas as they destroy the earth and people who need it. This song is about such a disaster which happened in the early 1900's. The images are of a mining settlement , company store and the area near the mine where people lived under control of the company. They were paid in script and always ended up owing money at the end of the month. I will begin on a book soon about the life I remember as a child growing up in West Virginia. It will be tied to a series of songs about the experiences. You will be amazed at how much people stayed together in spirit through the best and the worst of times. The truly paid with Blood By The Ton.

Coal Creek March
 
01:34
There's much history in this tune -- two historic and tragic coal miners events in Tennessee before and after 1900 -- and a classic 20's recording by Alan Lomax of Pete Steele's 2-finger picking style. Stephen Wade dedicated all of Chapter 8 to Pete Steele in his epic book, The Beautiful Music All Around Us. The mining stories are told in depth, including Pete Steele's own life-saving rescue of his son trapped by a boulder. Pete played the tune in whirlwind fashion. I go through it slowly, attempting to play each note clearly. Art Rosenbaum covered this tune in his new Old-Time Banjo Book. The tuning is f#DF#AD. The most interesting thing I discovered is that I can easily adapt to learning 2-finger style when 3-finger has been my style for a long time. It's always a learning journey....

Tribute Coal Miners
 
04:30
(Photo's belong to their copyright owners, I do Not claim ownership). "I just wanted to honor those that gave their lives" so you could turn your PC on. This video is dedicated to underground Miner's around the world, even Gem miners. I think coal miners are the most forgotten people on this Earth...Until an accident occurs. One person asked how far down is Hell?... "It's just a 1/4 mile down" was the reply. One shot shows a coin "25" that is how they use to buy things at the (Company Store) most people today didn't know this. Tennessee Ernie Ford wrote a song, "I owe my soul to the company store" When you ran out of these coins you started a tab/chit. thus...you have the story. I want to thank 2 people for their inspiration, guidance, and help: ulead123 & superglide63 and a few of my friends for their support to post it. INFO ABOUT THE COIN: Imagine spending your days in the depths of the earth; doing the dirty, dangerous work of mining coal. Then consider what it would be like to be paid for your labor with money that could be considered virtually worthless. This was the plight of many miners during the early 20th Century; this is the story of scrip. As coal mining in the Appalachian region of the United States began to develop in the late 1800's, mines were established in remote, rugged areas, far away from banks and stores. Partially from a need to supply household goods to miners and partially to capitalize on an opportunity to make a profit, mine owners established company stores in their mining town. As actual U. S. currency was difficult for mines to keep on hand in sufficient quantities, the companies began to issue their own scrip tokens as payment for the miners' wages. Most scrip was unique in appearance so that a mine's company store could immediately identify its own scrip, as most did not want to accept tokens issued by another company. Miners were given scrip in advance of their wages to buy necessities for the home, but also to pay rent on the company-owned houses they lived in, to buy tools and supplies for work, to pay utilities and medical care, and even to contribute to a mandatory funeral fund. All this was paid to the coal company. There was little retail competition in the coalfields and the prices at some company stores were often so high that miners virtually had nothing left to collect when payday arrived. According to Stan Cohen, in his book, King Coal: "Payment by scrip served a dual purpose. The miner could get wages in advance of his regular paycheck, and he did not have borrow money or charge items at the store, The company in turn did not need to keep extensive charge account records, nor were there difficult collection problems involved." Scrip started out in paper form but by the early 1900's was commonly being created in brass, copper, and aluminum coins. To conserve metal during World War II, fiber scrip was occasionally produced. Each company had its own version and each mine's company store accepted only its own scrip. The government ultimately outlawed the use of scrip and it began to decline in use in the 1950's, disappearing entirelyby the early 1970's. A variety of other industries besides coal - such as lumber, textiles, agriculture, paper, copper, gold, and silver—issued scrip, creating thousands of varieties from more than 30 states.

Join me as we explore the Exhibition Coal Mine! This authentic restoration of a coal town and mine will give you a glimpse into the day-to-day life of a coal miner during the early 1900’s. We’ll discover the coal camp buildings and there significance, learn about the history of WV coal mining in the museum, and take a trip 1500 feet underground on man cars through the Phillips Family Mine. Then I’ll speculate as to how coal mining will fit into the gameplay of Fallout 76!

That Day in 1902 - The Mount Kembla Mine Disaster
 
07:45
The 31st of July 1902 was the worst day in Mount Kembla's and Kembla Height's history, 95 of its men and boys were killed in the Mt Kembla Coal Mine Disaster along with Wollongong man Major Henry Osborne MacCabe a rescuer. Almost every house in Kembla Heights suffered the loss of a father, brother, husband or son. In some homes fathers and sons died together, in one home four brothers never came home. The grief was inescapable. The sad and terrible tragedy is marked to this day by headstones in local cemeteries, all with the same date, 31st of July 1902. This short film was the first film my sister Romina and I made together. In 2008 we wanted to commemorate the 106th anniversary of the Mt Kembla mine disaster with something emotionally moving, something that would put the viewer in the place of those left behind, giving them an opportunity to internalise the tragedy. When we read history, we read it from a safe distance; we can protect our emotions and detach ourselves from the trauma. Film and particularly sound in this case, provides a way to bypass the analytical brain and reach the emotions. With a budget of $0.00, I research all I could on the Mt Kembla coal mine disaster. Stuart Piggin and Henry Lee’s 1992 book ‘The Mt Kembla Disaster’ was my textbook scoured for any mention of sounds and sights mentioned in newspaper reports of the time. My step-father Graham Wade assisted with script writing, structure and review (sadly it was the last creative project we did with him, he passed away in 2009). We borrowed a camera and filmed over a week end. We didn't have a horse or a coal mine tunnel to film in, but we improvised making the camera the horse and a dark night the tunnel. Then came the long process of editing, creating and adding a moving soundscape and just the right music with Miffy Ryan on violin and Jonny Spillane on the tin whistle. Romina described it as poetry with sound. You'll need good speakers to hear all the subtle sounds. No words are spoken, yet you are carried away with the story. The film has been on display at the Mt Kembla Heritage Centre ever since and now for the first time, to commemorate the 114th anniversary of the disaster; we've made it available on-line. We hope you enjoy it.

Urbex | Exploring Abandoned Power Plant with Coal
 
10:29
Exploring an abandoned Power Plant with Coal This abandoned power plant was built in the early 1900's and provided power for a state institution up the hill. This power plant was coal driven. The Reading Railroad would provide weekly drop offs of coal to this power station. The state school / hospital had issues with abuse and neglect and was ordered to close in 1986. The school remained with power up till 1991 when the light switch, in other words, was turned off for the entire campus. This power plant remained vacant and still does today. Coal can still be found inside which I thought was very cool. A lot of decay inside this one too. I did not explore everything due to the sketchy catwalks but it was still cool to see some older equipment. Hope you all enjoy.

Historic Alfretta Red Ore Mine Site
 
07:29
A photo & video compilation taken during an exploration to the historic Alfretta Red Ore Mines located in Trussville, Alabama. The mine site dates back to around 1900 and was owned and operated by the Republic Steel Company. Open ore, drift and slope mining took place at four different locations along the southeast side of Red Mountain on either side of Morrows Gap that today Edwards Lake Road goes through. L&N's Birmingham Mineral Railroad serviced all the mines in this area. Mining operations ceased between 1915 to1920 at these sites. Much evidence of mining operations can still be seen today.

Red Gap Mine Site
 
05:58
A photo & video compilation taken while exploring the mostly forgotten Red Gap Mine located in what is today's Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve. The mine site like so many others along Ruffner mountain started out in the 1880's as an open ore and drift mine. The mine was operated by The Alabama Company which was a subsidiary then of Sloss Sheffield Steel & Iron Company which pretty much owned the entire mountain in those days. Around 1900 slope mining commenced at Red Gap and was operated intermittently until about 1910 when mining there ceased. All extracted ore was transported via rail by L&N's Birmingham Mineral Railroad to Sloss's two blast furnaces in Birmingham at the time. Today the area is pretty overgrown and no trails lead to the mine site. The mine entrance was sealed many years ago and collapsed headers a clearly visible. A few openings can still be found but do not lead anywhere. Old drift mine workings are clearly visible throughout the deep ravines at the site. Still a great area to explore around.

Urbex | Exploring Abandoned City House - Untouched with Cool Staircase
 
10:51
Exploring Abandoned City House - Pennsylvania Built in the early 1900s, this large house was part of an institution and was the home of the superintendent. When the institution closed in the late 1900s, this house was vacated as well. The institution was bought by a private buyer in the mid 2000s but the sale did not include the land this house resides on. The State of Pennsylvania still owned this house until recently when a preservation group acquired it. They are actively fixing the place up and it will be a museum showcasing the history of the institution it belonged to. This house was vacant for over 20 years and since it was well protected by the state, it has probably one of the best looking interiors I have seen for over 20 year of vacancy. I was given permission by the preservation group to tour this house, so that is why you are seeing this video..
