AMD and stuffs (mining)

The coal mining industry showed increment during 19Th century and 20Th century due to the increase of usage of trains for transportation. Especially in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where the most coal mines were placed, was the most popular site for mining the coals. The workers, ironically, were not mostly Americans, but either people from Europe who were looking for jobs because of the Great Depression, which caused by the World War 1, or young children who dropped schools.

Mining seems easy, however it is not. The miners had to carry all their tools with them every time, and it is very dark inside even when they have light. Moreover, the area inside the mine is very small that a man can barely fit in. This is why the children were welcome to the mines.
