The Bearcreek, Montana coal mine, & the February 27th, 1943 coal mine explosion & fire that killed 75 of the 78 men on duty on the day shift. I'll be up at the Marias Heritage Center this evening (Tuesday) to read & share more Montana History as we continue on with the book, Goodbye Wifes and Daughters." It's laid out here in Susan Kushner Resnick's grim read alternating between portraits of the townspeople & the days leading up to the underground explosion, fire & suspense as we're drawn into the grim no holds barred true & factual story behind the story. See you tonight at 6 o'clock for more Montana History at the Heritage.
