Death's Door to play video

Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Sunday, December 22, 2013 - 03:40 pm:

Earlier today we posted the link to the PBS Documentary that aired last week - Red Metal: The Copper Country Strike of 1913. One of our local historians who appeared in the program was Larry Lankton, whose books and talks have introduced many people to the Copper Country over the years. More recently, Steve Lehto has focused more research on the details of the Italian Hall Disaster, which will mark 100 years this week.

The Youtube link above is to a talk which Steve Lehto gave in the Eastern U.P., in which he makes reference to the upcoming documentary. You may want to do like I did, hearing a little of these two videos at a time, over several sittings. Both advance our understanding of the conflict and the tragedy that played out exactly 100 years ago.

We hope your Christmas is a peaceful one, with safety and health for you and your family, as we remember the birth of The Prince of Peace.

Have a good week :o)
