At 10:20 a.m., December 6, 1907, explosions occurred at the No. 6
and No. 8 mines at Monongah, West Virginia. The explosions ripped
through the mines at 10:28 a.m., causing the earth to shake as far
as eight miles away, shattering buildings and pavement, hurling
people and horses violently to the ground, and knocking streetcars
off their rails. Three-hundred and sixty-two men and boys died. It
remains the worst mine disaster in the history of the United States
