For generations, coal has been the backbone of West Virginia, until jobs were wiped out by the tens of thousands. While some are counting on promises made to bring coal back, a new generation is embracing the next opportunity: green energy. But in the nationwide race to dominate renewable power production, West Virginia's deeply rooted tensions and interests may leave its workers behind.

Our visit to Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine was great! The people that work there are phenomenal and add that much more to the entire experience. There are three main things to be done for the price of the admission: 1. Take a ride in a real coal mine with an ex coal miner who shows from how the head lantern works to how to blast through rock to find coal. 2. The coal miner village with replicas of houses in which WV coal miners used to live: from the superintendent house to the 'bachelor's shack to a typical home of family of four. 3. The replica of an original homestead from when settlers arrived in West Virginia. The guides are absolutely fantastic and through stories and 'show and tell', they will make you re-live the hardships our ancestors had to endure.

Coal mining exhibit by American Industrial Mining, formerly Ohio Vintage Coal. Like everything at Brownsville, material flow is circular. The original Vesta #4 mine was located in the California, PA area, but spread over many square miles. At one time, it was the largest Bituminous mine in the world, producing many thousands of tons of coal per day.

If coal mining was stopped today, over 50% of Americans would literally freeze in the dark. Additionally, coal mining not only provides jobs for tens of thousands of miners, but the vendors and surrounding communities benefit as well. The sound track was written and performed by my friend James Powell of Berea, Ky. This video, in no way, is intended to negatively portray coal mining. It simply shows what some people will chance in order for you to be able to flip a light switch on and be able to see, or turn your thermostat up and not freeze to death. LeRoy Moore Jr.

OUT OF MY MIND is available for download from CD Baby, iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, among others. https://www.cdbaby.com/cd/dancunningham4 The song was recognized in six different songwrtiting competitions - OUT OF MY MIND is a tragic tale from the Appalachian coal-fields. The story told in this song is fictional, but the background is drawn from the history of coal mining in West Virginia around 1920. When the miners attempted to unionize, the mining company would hire companies like the Baldwin-Felts Detective Agency to provide security. Among other duties, these "hired guns" would evict miners (and their families) from company housing when they no longer worked for the company. A miner might lose his job for involvement union organizing, and of course, a dead man was no longer an employee. In this song, the narrator tries to stop his mother's eviction and the confrontation ends in violence. “The Baldwin-Felts came calling The week my daddy died Put my momma on the street I tried my best to help her but I killed a man instead” (CONCERNING TRAINS and this song) It is a familiar sight deep in the Appalachians, particularly in years past. In those narrow valleys of the coal fields, there may be a road, a creek or river, and a railroad track, with scant room for much else on that narrow ribbon of "flat" land between the mountains. The sound of the train winding thru the valley is part of the environment. It is the background music for every activity in those small communities. Of, course we end the song with some coal train imagery. “I set out on the rails tonight I have to get away the wheels, they click, the lonely whistle blows A snake of coal cars follows me , black as my wicked deed” Out Of My Mind, received attention from six different songwriting competitions and John Francis (2006 ASCAP Sammy Cahn Lyricist of the Year) said, "OUT OF MY MIND is a very cool, dark, murder ballad. Artful. Your voice is very compelling". -Regional finalist 2010 New Song/Mountain Stage contest -Story Song finalist 2010 Independent Music Awards -Semi-Finalist Acoustic Roundtable 2011 Worldwide Search -Semi-Finalist 2011 SONG OF THE YEAR contest -2012 East Coast Songwriters Honorable Mention Americana/Folk -2017 Just Plain Folks Music Awards Americana nomination You can search the internet for more information West Virginia coal wars and the Baldwin Felts Detective Agency.
