Coal Mining Documentary - The Most Dangerous Job On Earth - Classic History
Coal Mining Documentary - The Most Dangerous Job On Earth - Classic History Coal mining is the process of extracting coal from the ground. Coal is valued for its energy content, and, since the 1880s, has been widely used to generate electricity. Steel and cement industries use coal as a fuel for extraction of iron from iron ore and for cement production. In the United Kingdom and South Africa a coal mine and its structures are a colliery, a coal mine a pit, and the above-ground structures the pit head. In Australia, "colliery" generally refers to an underground coal mine. In the United States "colliery" has been used to describe a coal mine operation but nowadays the word is not commonly used. Coal mining has had many developments over the recent years, from the early days of men tunnelling, digging and manually extracting the coal on carts, to large open cut and long wall mines. Mining at this scale requires the use of draglines, trucks, conveyors, hydraulic jacks and shearers. Small-scale mining of surface deposits dates back thousands of years. For example, in Roman Britain, the Romans were exploiting most of the major coalfields by the late 2nd century AD. Read More: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coal_mining

Cwmorthin Slate Mine
The fourth visit, but this time with video! Photos here http://forgottenwales.co.uk/section587757_495491.html Cwmorthin Slate Quarry is a substantial disused slate mine found on the shores of Llyn Cwmorthin above the town of Blaenau Ffestiniog, North Wales. It is one of a number of slate mines that circle the town, most of which were enormous enterprises in their day. It has a long and complex history beginning in the early 1800's, with heavy underground development starting around 1860*. It was run by several different companies as a venture in its own right during the 1800's. The earlier underground workings started at "Lake Level", so called due to the entrance being just above the surface of the nearby Llyn Cwmorthin, and ascended upwards in the mountain ultimately for 8 floors in both the Old and Back Vein. Poor working practices and reckless engineering decisions ultimately led to a substantial collapse and the end of that company. A new company took the mine on afterwards and reused Lake Level but sealed off the shattered and dangerous upper floors. Instead, they developed new workings below, going down into the mountain. Ultimately this company sunk five floors on both veins, before itself being being forcibly closed in 1901 due to a legal dispute. The now abandoned lower floors flooded up to Lake Level, containing an immense amount of water hundreds of feet deep, which remained until the early 1930's. The neighbouring mine (Oakeley Quarries) were at this time driving underneath the old Cwmorthin workings and were uneasy about having such a huge volume of water above them, so decided to drain it out. Special diamond-drilled bore holes were driven through into the deepest parts of Cwmorthin from Oakeley and the water drained out under controlled conditions. When the water level reached the bottom, the mines were connected in several places by full-size tunnels and Oakeley (who'd taken over the ownership of Cwmorthin) actually re-opened some of Cwmorthin and put men to work in it. The Back Vein Incline was re-equipped and even a new incline was driven down another 90 vertical feet to open some more chambers. Cwmorthin then operated essentially as just another part of Oakeley right up until 1970 when Oakeley itself closed. This marked the end of the mine's working life as a major concern, however, throughout the 1980's and early 1990's the mine was working on a limited scale by a small team of local men. Extraction occurred in a few chambers on Lake Level and Level 1, with the underground transport being provided by a Series 2 Land Rover 88". The final twitch occurred in the late 1990's when deep bore-holes were sunk from the surface to near the long abandoned upper floors, filled with explosive and fired, in an attempt to break open the rock to make it suitable for untopping. Little was achieved in this venture however, other than creating massive damage to the already fractured early upper workings. Today, almost all of the earlier upper workings in both the Back Vein and Old Vein are inaccessible and damaged. It is likely that large tracts of these workings deep in the hill remain in reasonable condition, but are cut off from our reach. Most of the workings in the lower five floors of both the Back Vein and Old Vein can be accessed today. The Back Vein workings are in excellent shape in structurally good rock, almost all of it is still available to explore. The Old Vein workings however are in a much poorer condition due to the weaker, more fractured rock in which they were driven. Most of it can still be gotten into one way or another, but there have been many wall and roof failures and numerous chambers have collapsed entirely. What's left to us to see today still comprises of many miles of tunnel and hundreds of enormous chambers. Within these workings can be found artefacts ranging from powder horns to timber stairways, from winches to wagons, and from cranes to bridges. Many days can be spent enjoying this exciting and awe-inspiring environment that will always remain a significant monument to the world famous Welsh Slate industry.

Mom Warns Other About Dangers of Swimming In Quarries After Son Died
More from Inside Edition: http://bit.ly/2bF0iuC Thousands of quarries exist across the country but some can be disastrous. Jonathan Baksh, 19, jumped into Martin's Creek quarry in Pennsylvania in 2015, but he never made it back to land after suffering a cramp in the water. His mom was stunned when she found out her son was the second young man to die in quarry that year. Now, as the one year anniversary of her son's passing arrives next month, she's on a crusade to tell the world about the dangers of swimming in quarries.

Going Underground in the Mine With Endless Tunnels!
For those of you who like videos where there is a LOT of footage of walking through endless abandoned mine tunnels -- you're going to love this video! I stumbled upon this mine in a remote area of Arizona quite some time ago. Research yielded little information on this mine except that it was a producer of gold and silver. The workings consist of endless tunnels that are intersected by a vertical shaft from higher on the mountain. Because of this, the mine had strong airflow throughout its meandering tunnels. As you may know, strong airflow like that is a good sign that the mine is well-ventilated which reduces the risk of encountering oxygen-deficient air. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration

Exploring an Old Miner's Cabin and His Abandoned Gold Mine
I spent a day with Paul in the Nevada desert exploring and documenting an abandoned mine and the cabin next to it. The cabin dates back to the late 1800s. The mine itself was unusual because immediately inside the portal, there was a three-way intersection. We found a hand-cranked winch deep in the mine dating back over 100 years as well as a maze of tunnels and interconnected tunnels. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration
25 Creepy Pictures of Abandoned Buildings
From seriously scary and strange places; to abandoned and haunted hotels; these are 25 Creepy Pictures of Abandoned Buildings Subscribe to Epic Wildlife http://goo.gl/6rzs5u Let's Connect -- http://www.epicadamwildlife.com/ -- http://www.facebook.com/epicadamwildlife -- http://www.twitter.com/epicwildlife -- http://gplus.to/epicwildlife This abandoned factory has a lot of graffiti scrawled all over the place. No doubt it spells out, “Urban Decay”. It made us think of films like “A Clockwork Orange”, or “The Warriors”. It looks like a great location for those types of movies. Tunnel Vision It looks like a tunnel, or the opening to a James Bond movie. But this is actually a bunker located near Chernobyl, northeast of Kiev (KEE-eff). We don’t don’t know if it was used during the disaster at the nuclear plant … but that would be reason enough to abandon it! Not precisely sure where this picture was taken, or what the building once housed. Our guess is it was some sort of hospital, or maybe an insane asylum. Now it’s showing up on a lot of urban explorer sites … have you been there? Scary Stories This one pretty much has haunted house written all over it, doesn’t it? The black and white photography gives it a strange gothic look. And if ghosts didn’t infest it, this like the type of place Norman Bates would call home. There is a reason why we labelled this one, “Scary Stories” … see if you can suss it out. The ruins of this ancient factory have a resemblance to some of the locations you might have seen in post apocalyptic video games like call of Duty, or “Fallout 3” (Game of the Year edition, of course). You better have your PIP-Boy 3000 ready just in case! Our sources indicate these desolate buildings are located in Japan, on Hashima (ha-SHEE-mah) Island. It was abandoned in the mid-1970s after its coal supplies were depleted. These apartments were constructed in 1916 and housed coal miners who worked on the island. While the inhabitants have long since departed, the island named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2015 … and these buildings have attracted a lot of attention … since they remain so remarkably intact. That Sinking Feeling Maybe this one looks a little more bizarre than outright creepy … but it definitely gets your attention. This building is understandably abandoned … but what could it have been, and what made it sink like that? It could have been a house that had an oceanfront view Another very strange looking building. At first, we thought it might have been Photoshopped, but we’re not so sure. It appears to be the crooked facades of an abandoned building … but was it designed that way, or is that weird shape the result of some form of damage? Let us know what you think in the comments! If this dilapidated house doesn’t have ghosts, evil spirits or ax-wielding maniacs roaming about the place, then it really should. It looks like it came from Central Casting for scary homes in the woods. Does it make you think of any horror movies in particular? And before heading to our number one abandoned building, let’s take a timeout for an honorable mention. It’s not included in the main list since it’s not really a building. But the strange looking object has such an unusual design that it really caught our attention! As near as we could tell, this abandoned structure was a type of electrical transformer constructed of Tesla coils … Let us know if you can identify it. Evil Edifice Not a whole lot of information came with this image … but it is enough to give you the jim-jams. The creepy building is actually a church, with a cemetery located on the grounds … and it’s said to be located in Wales. The very stark look makes the dilapidated church suitable for some sort of mystical medieval mayhem. What could you call this place?

Incredibly Rare Wooden Ore Cart Found Inside A Mine!
Well, we certainly don’t come across something like this every day when we’re out exploring… Just like the abandoned steam engine we featured in another video, this is one of those incredible once in a lifetime finds. There are precious few of these wooden ore carts left in existence and even fewer that can still be found at an abandoned mine rather than rotting away in someone’s backyard. Fortunately, this mine is not marked on any topographic maps and it is in a very remote area of the desert. I believe this is what has protected it from the vermin that ransack these sites to sell the historical artifacts on eBay. Were it not for these circumstances, the wooden ore cart would have undoubtedly disappeared a long time ago. We have found bits and pieces of the metal frames of wooden ore carts in and around some of the old (1800s) mines in California’s “Mother Lode” region. So, obviously, they were used there. However, the wood has long since rotted away and whatever was left of the abandoned carts has disintegrated with time and exposure to the elements. If you consider it, wooden ore carts actually made a lot of sense for the miners in the past that were venturing out over steep mountains and down deep canyons, often over little more than primitive trails. Rather than needing to use a team of mules to haul a backbreakingly heavy metal ore cart up a sheer cliff to a mine, the miners could have hauled out the relatively lightweight (except for the wheels) components and then assembled the carts from the plentiful trees growing around the mine. And, as was mentioned in the video, if something breaks, the miners could just cut another tree down and repair the cart. From the look of it, the wooden ore cart at this mine in the video may have likewise been constructed from the trees found around the mine. As for the mine itself, which was almost an afterthought for me after finding the wooden ore cart, it wasn’t a huge mine, but I thought it was an interesting little mine all the same, no? The flickering effect created by the LEDs on the video drove me nuts when I was editing it, but focusing on the features of the mine, I liked the way the mine twisted around until it reached that small raise and the winze. Given how clean this first section of the mine was, I can only conclude that that section is the one that was worked most recently and the area behind the skip car (where the rails for the ore carts disappeared) was driven during the early days of the mine and then abandoned. I don’t blame the miners for abandoning that section of the mine given how soft the material there was. ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference… You can click here for the full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L If you like these videos on exploring abandoned mines, please subscribe! https://goo.gl/yjPxH1 Thanks for watching! ***** Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that niche of our history is gone forever. But, guess what? We have fun doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a hundred years, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

10 Most Dangerous Gangs In The World
These criminal gangs are notorious for their crimes. Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg When it comes to gangs, everyone knows that they are quite dangerous. There are often intense initiations when it comes to wanting to join these gangs that usually involve beatings, sex, and drugs. Many of these gangs make their income from illegal activities such as drug dealing, prostitution, and drug trafficking, murdering people, and stealing. Some of the most notorious and dangerous gangs have hundreds of thousands of members, and are lurking around every corner of the United States. Plus, some have even gone international (that alone should disturb you). Gangs have also provided inspiration for numerous movies, television shows, and music. Many gangs recruit their members while they are very young, even at elementary school age. There is a lot of speculation as to why someone would want to join a gang. Perhaps they came from a rough home life, or they don’t have a family, and they’re looking for some sort of acceptance. Or they are rebelling against their parents. It is hard to determine one good reason for anyone to join a gang. Sure, it may seem great at first. But the first time you break a rule or mess up, it could mean that you’re in for a beating that may leave permanent scares, or worse, you could be killed. Thousands of people have come out with their stories of their struggle of breaking out of the gang life, and it’s much harder than putting in your two weeks’ notice at work. Many times, these people have to move and even assume new identities to avoid any backlash from their former lives. Some of the most dangerous gangs in history have included the Crips and the Bloods, two rival gangs that were formed in the mid twentieth century and are considered to be ruthless in their dealings. These two gangs primarily make their money from illegal activities, usually drugs. What is even more disturbing is that the Crips has over 30,000 members. Many people are familiar with the Hells Angels, who ride their motorcycles across the country wreaking havoc on innocent lives. Hells Angels operate worldwide and are heavily involved in the prostitution scene. Other gangs include the Latin Kings, which is the largest and the largest Hispanic street gang. Vagos has over 4,000 members in Canada, Australia, and the United States. The 18th Street Gang started in Los Angeles in the 1960’s and recruit young children. The MS-13 is worldwide and focuses on Central Americans and involved in human trafficking, Cosa Nostra founded in Italy in the 1800’s and have 250,000 members worldwide, and finally Yakuza is a transnational gang formed in Japan. Ironically, Yakuza looks down on dealing drugs, but human trafficking is an acceptable practice of money making. Many gangs were formed in prison, such as the Aryan Brotherhood, which is a Neo Nazi prison gang responsible for a high about of deaths in the prison system. They are identifiable from their shaved heads and numerous tattoos that are reminiscent of Nazi Germany. In closing, wherever you go, and whatever you do, tread carefully if you ever find yourself on a gang’s turf. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheRichest.org Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheRichest_Com Instagram: http://instagram.com/therichest ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Featuring: Latin Kings The Crips The Bloods Vagos 18th Street Gang Hells Angels MS-13 (Mara Salvatrucha) Cosa Nostra Aryan Brotherhood Yakuza ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- For more videos and articles visit: http://www.therichest.com/

The Children Who Built Victorian Britain Part 1
The catalyst to Britain's Industrial Revolution was the slave labour of orphans and destitute children. In this shocking and moving account of their exploitation and eventual emancipation, Professor Jane Humphries uses the actual words of these child workers (recorded in diaries, interviews and letters) to let them tell their own story. She also uses groundbreaking animation to bring to life a world where 12-year-olds went to war at Trafalgar and six-year-olds worked the fields as human scarecrows. Jane Humphries: Jane Humphries is a fellow of All Soul Souls College and a Professor of Economic History at Oxford University and the author of "Childhood and Child Labour in the British Industrial Revolution". In "The Children Who Built Victorian England" she uses the biographies, letters, diaries and documents of hundreds of working children to tell the story of the Industrial Revolution from their perspective. By accessing their testimonies she allows them to speak up for themselves and what they have to say may surprise you. These children weren't mindless drones or soul-less victims; they were feisty, clever, gutsy and determined people who collectively made sure that future generations did not suffer the same fate they did. The programme also sees Jane visiting Jane visits the places where the children worked as she tries to get a picture of how widespread the practice of child labour was. She also looks at the kind of jobs that, 200 years ago, were seen as appropriate for children. More tellingly she also reveals the social conditions which created a population boom amongst the poor - one which was exploited by the early industrialists. For example most of the new factories were built in sparsely populated areas and so their workforce was provided through the trafficking of orphans from the cities. These destitute children aged eight and sometimes younger, who were handed over by the Parish authorities and signed up to work for free until they reached adulthood.

Eerie Flooded Winzes in the Abandoned Bluejay Mine
The Bluejay Mine was a copper mine discovered in the late 1800's and worked until 1908 or 1909. The mine didn't produce much ore, but a huge amount of money was invested into the mine. The workings consist of a several thousand foot long crosscut tunnel, several winzes, and a few short drifts. Today, the old winzes are completely flooded with a deep blue colored water. About 1,500 into the mine, the air begins to become oxygen deficient. If you explore this mine, please turn around at the second winze! The inclined winze shown first was explored by divers a few years ago, their video of the dive can be found here: https://frogkickdiving.com/mine-exploration-project#59884081-cf7a-4765-80ba-1bba5c00060a Thanks for watching!

St. Elmo Colorado - A True Old West Ghost Town - Abandoned America
See Photos from our St. Elmo Visit Here: http://bit.ly/St-Elmo-CO St. Elmo was first named Forest City but was later changed because of a California town with the same name. The name St. Elmo was chosen by Griffith Evans, one of the founding fathers, who was at the time reading the novel "St. Elmo". At its peak in the 1890s, the town boasted a general store, telegraph office, town hall, Over 5 hotels, a handful of saloons, dancing halls, a newspaper office, and a schoolhouse. The Denver, South Park and Pacific Railroad line ran through St. Elmo (Yes, it's the same South Park you are thinking of). There were 150 mines claimed within St. Elmo. The majority of the folks who lived in St. Elmo worked at the Mary Murphy, Teresa C., The Molly or the Pioneer Mines. The Mary Murphy Mine was the biggest and most productive mine in the area. While in operation, the Mary Murphy Mine recovered over $60,000,000 worth of gold. While the other local mines shut down, the Mary Murphy Mine continued to operate until the "gold standard" was implemented. Which collapsed the price of silver overnight. As a result. The Railroad was closed and eventually abandoned in 1922. Even after the world gave up on this town and its mines, people continued to harvest ore. This was done by hand and miners would haul individual mining carts down the mountain. Once the mining industry closed completely, St. Elmo drastically declined. Miners searched elsewhere for gold, rather than silver. The business district in St. Elmo closed down as well. Few people continued to live in the town. Postal service was discontinued in 1952 after the death of St. Elmo's postmaster. The current population is...three. Have more information about St. Elmo? Want to share?

Underground Forest Of Timbers In Abandoned Mine – Part 2
As I mentioned in the first video, the primary focus on our visit to this abandoned copper mine was to explore the, apparently, undocumented upper adits. They were both interesting and impressive and I am glad that I visited them (although I regret not taking a closer look at one of them that I thought was impossible to enter, but WAS actually possible as I found out later). However, I was unable to resist taking a quick look inside the main section of this mine… That would be the 250 level and is the focus of this video. I initially just went in to the 250 level for a bit in order to rush on to the upper adits before it got dark. However, when we came to accept that, no matter what, we were going to be riding our motorcycles back in the dark without headlights, the time pressure was lifted from us and we returned to the 250 level in the main section of the mine for a closer look. According to the records we located, this mine was worked on at least 6-7 levels and had in excess of two miles of underground workings. Yes, two miles of underground workings is not a typo. The miners pursued the copper ore quite aggressively through multiple adits, a deep shaft, open stopes and even surface work. Despite the extensive amount of work – and quite professional work – it appears that almost all of the work at this mine was conducted for just a decade or so after 1916. In that time, the miners reportedly extracted more than one million dollars worth of copper (and don’t forget, those are 1920s dollars). If you are curious as to what the entire mine looks like, I would heartily suggest following the links below… Although there is overlap, each of us also focused on different parts of the mine. So, putting all of the videos together provides a VERY complete picture of this mine: Mines of the West does a thorough, level-by-level series on this mine: Part 1: https://youtu.be/jFGAxzJyk5g Part 2: https://youtu.be/y_2kgq9dx4s Part 3: https://youtu.be/RKxMV8G1ZcM Jake covers the inside, of course, and does a good job of it, but also covers the hill above the main part of the mine that none of the rest of us covered at all: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8-jMpJin6E Mr. McBride, both informative and entertaining, does a broad overview of the highlights of this abandoned mine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYfsiEjgZpU If I missed anyone, please let me know, so that I can update this section… Again, teamwork will get all of these mines explored and documented! ***** All of these videos are uploaded in HD, so adjust those settings to ramp up the quality! It really does make a difference… You can click here for the full playlist of abandoned mines: https://goo.gl/TEKq9L Thanks for watching! ***** Growing up in California’s “Gold Rush Country” made it easy to take all of the history around us for granted. However, abandoned mine sites have a lot working against them – nature, vandals, scrappers and various government agencies… The old prospectors and miners that used to roam our lonely mountains and toil away deep underground are disappearing quickly as well. These losses finally caught our attention and we felt compelled to make an effort to document as many of the ghost towns and abandoned mines that we could before that niche of our history is gone forever. But, you know what? We enjoy doing it! This is exploring history firsthand – bushwhacking down steep canyons and over rough mountains, figuring out the techniques the miners used and the equipment they worked with, seeing the innovations they came up with, discovering lost mines that no one has been in for a century, wandering through ghost towns where the only sound is the wind... These journeys allow a feeling of connection to a time when the world was a very different place. And I’d love to think that in some small way we are paying tribute to those hardy miners that worked these mines before we were even born. So, yes, in short, we are adit addicts… I hope you’ll join us on these adventures! #ExploringAbandonedMines #MineExploring #AbandonedMines #UndergroundMineExploring

Creepiest Abandoned Houses
From isolated cabins in the woods… to haunted castles and mansions ... Here are 16 of the creepiest abandoned houses! #16 Cabins In The Woods You’ll find these spartan cabins in the ghost town of Garnet, Montana. In the 1860s it was a small mining town, and workers called these small cabins their home. For a time, plenty of gold was yielded from the motherlode. But when the gold ran out in 1918, so did the populace. Nowadays, the well-preserved ghost town receives around 16,000 visitors a year. Maybe you’d like to visit the creepy looking cabins for yourself! #15 Home Alone At some point in time, this shack served as someone’s home. And maybe it still does, who knows? But we’re betting this decayed domicile has effectively been abandoned for a while now. Just at how the branches and vines seem to be pulling it to the ground. There’s a lot about this picture that gives off bad vibes. Can you come up with a backstory for this strange looking place? If so, let us know in the comments. #14 Vampire’s Retreat This is a manor house located in Romania … or the remains of one, anyway. As you might know, Romania is known for a forested area called Transylvania, which borders on the Carpathian (kar-PAY-thee-un) Mountains. And Transylvania is known for Vlad the Impaler, also known as Vlad Dracula, and said to be the inspiration for the legendary vampire. With those windows covered up it would be the perfect hideaway for an undead creature of the night. What do you think? #13 The Psycho House This one probably needs no introduction. It’s the place that Norman Bates and his mom once called home. Immortalized in Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 film “Psycho”, its formal name is actually ‘The ‘Bates Mansion’. After being abandoned by filmmakers, the house became a popular attraction at the Universal Studios backlot in Hollywood. And although it’s been altered and moved several times, the house still remains an icon of creepiness, so it’s worthy of our list. If the Bates Motel was full, would you be willing to sleep in the house?

Calico Ghost Town 2017 California. Video & Pictures slideshow
Some video and pictures taken from the Calico ghost town in California. It was a active mining town in the late 1800's but a large portion of the population left when the price of silver dropped. Restored in 1951 by Walter Knott (Knott's Berry Farm), now a tourist attraction with campgrounds. There's a little something for everybody here. Fun to walk around and explore, take a train ride, pan for gold, visit numerous gift shops, restaurants, food stands, plus much more. This video mainly focuses on the exterior buildings and I encourage anyone to visit.

America's Sources of Immigration (1850-Today)
A state-by-state look at the history of U.S. immigration by country of origin as President Trump blocks immigrants and refugees from Iraq, Syria, Iran, etc. and vows to build a wall on the US-Mexico border.

In 1850, the vast majority of newcomers were from Ireland and Germany. In the 1860’s the labor shortages during the Civil War created strong demand for immigrant labor, nearly doubling the foreign born population in a decade. 1870 saw Mexico become the top country of origin in much of the Southwest, while British immigrants preferred the rocky mountain territories. The 1880 census showed that the Chinese were coming in large numbers. Many took dangerous jobs in the mines or on railroad building crews. For the next century immigrants from Canada crossing the southern border would be the largest group settling in many of the northernmost American states. In 1882 the Chinese Exclusion Act blocked the arrival of large numbers of Asian immigrants for much of the next century. Unfortunately the overall microdata for the 1890 census were destroyed in a 1921 fire at the Department of Commerce. So fast-forward to 1900, the turn of the century, when the territorial boundaries of the continental United States were settled. For the first time Norwegians, Swedes, and Italians were the largest groups coming to South Dakota, Minnesota and Louisiana, respectively. 1910 shows us how quickly things can change, with large numbers of Russians and Italians arriving, the only state where Ireland was the top country of origin was tiny Delaware. With the American population exceeded 100 million in the 1920 census, there were equal numbers of German, Italian, and Russian born immigrants. Many had fled Europe to escape the horrors of World War I. By 1930 the industrial revolution was in full swing, and the country was growing rapidly from within, so the percent of foreign born fell. And, for the first time since 1850, Mexico was the dominant country of origin for new arrivals to California. By 1940, the quotas and other congressional measures passed in the previous decade to restrict immigration sharply cut the foreign born population to below 9%. 1950 saw the effects of the repeal of the Chinese Exclusion Act, as Chinese immigrants were finally welcomed back. Greeks were the largest group arriving in South Carolina. When Alaska and Hawaii became states in 1959, the year before the 1960 census, Canadians simply crossed the border to immigrate to The Last Frontier, but Filipinos crossed an entire ocean to become The Aloha State’s largest group. By 1970, the percentage of foreign born reached an all-time low. And with immigrants arriving from a wider range of countries, Italy was the only nation that had sent more than a million people. In 1980, after Congress began granting more visas to people from the Western Hemisphere, the number of states where Mexico was the top country of origin doubled in a decade, becoming the dominant foreign born population in the entire country. And in 1990 America began to look like the diverse country we live in today. Mexico was tops in 18 states, Dominicans were the largest group coming to New York, and South Korea and Southeast Asian nations were the leading countries of origin in seven states. In the year 2000 census the number of Mexican-born immigrants surpassed nine million. It’s also notable that India was the top country of origin in three states. And the 2010 census reveals exactly why America is quickly becoming so diverse: only five states - all of them bordering Canada - received the most immigrants from a majority white country.

Found!  Secret Gold Mine and Mining Camp Hidden in the Mountains
We recently stumbled upon this secret, hidden, abandoned mine and mining camp high up in the mountains. We explored one mine tunnel as well as the surface structures. A shed onsite contained an old vintage Silvertone radio/record player from 1940, a winch, a newspaper from 1957, and other artifacts. Inside the mine, we found more artifacts used by the miners, and we demonstrate in the video how those artifacts were used by the miners long ago. #ExploringAbandonedMines #AbandonedMines #MineExploring #UndergroundExploration

Ellsworth was at one time a thriving town but is not completely abandoned. Unfortunately vandals have had their way with this historic place and have left it in shambles. History Of Ellsworth Ghost Town, Nevada "ELLSWORTH is in Mammoth District, thirty miles south of the old overland road through the Cold Spring range of mountains, and about twelve miles westerly from Ione. It contains a post-office and stage station. Ore was discovered in 1863 by the Indians, and in 1864, Sam. McKeon, A. T. Hatch, and others, organized a district. The town was started soon afterwards, but its growth was slow and discouraging until 1870, when a ten-stamp mill was built. Its population then increased to 200, and it became very lively. Since 1874 the mill has been operated only a portion of the time, and the population of the town has dwindled down to twenty persons, including six miners. The quartz veins are found in a formation of granite, which runs northeast and southwest, the veins running with it and dipping to the west at an angle of forty-five degrees. The ores are mostly free-milling, and average about $100 to the ton. The principal mines are the Peoria, Morning Call, General Lee, Silver Wave, Mount Vernon and Lisbon. The greatest depth of shaft is in the Mount Vernon, 180 feet. When the mill was in operation, Indians were employed at the pans, settlers, concentrators and furnaces, with a couple of white men to oversee them, and proved very efficient laborers. The cost of wood delivered at the mills, has usually been three dollars and a quarter per cord. Salt is worth thirty-five dollars per ton. Water for the mill is obtained from a forty-foot well. Some very rich ore has been taken from the Esta Buena Mine, located and owned by Don Manuel San Pedro, of Grantsville. Some of it has gone as high as $1,600 per ton. Several tons worked in the mill yielded $325 each. The nearest railroad point is Austin, sixty-five miles to the northeast. Freight is brought from Wadsworth at the rate of fifty dollars per ton."

Going Deep Underground in the Abandoned Cherokee Mine (Part 1 of 2)
In this video, Justin and I explore a large, modern silver - lead - zinc mine. The deposit exploited in this mine was originally discovered in the 1800's. Small mines were developed far up in the hills above the Cherokee Mine. Later on, the Cherokee adits were driven below the older workings from the 1800 and 1900's. It's unclear to me whether the workings connected, but both mines exploited the same ore bodies. The primary drift in the Cherokee Mine runs for miles to the right off the main haulage adits. In this part, we only explore a very small fraction of this enormous mine. There also may be levels below the level we explore that are completely submerged in water. I have been unable to locate maps of this mine, so I cannot verify that this is correct. The Cherokee Mine was only worked for a few years before being abandoned. The mine's ore was not profitable enough to sustain the large costs associated with mining it. The dump for the mine contains copious amounts of pyrite, sphalerite, and galena. Check out Justin's videos of this mine! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PVCEmKLqsDg&t=14s

This is a dog lover's introduction into one of if not my favorite breed. The boerboel aka the South African Mastiff is a highly intelligent dog with keen instincts for guarding and protection work. The Boerboel Breed History The Boerboel dates back to the mid-1600s in South Africa. Its name comes from the Afrikaan word “boer,” which means “farmer.” This word refers to the early white Dutch farmers who settled in South Africa. The farmers used large, Mastiff-like dogs to guard and protect their farms and families. Dutchman Jan van Riebeeck arrived at the Cape Horn of South Africa in 1652. He brought a dog with him to protect his family in the wild, unfamiliar and unforgiving new territory. That popular Dutch dog was called a "Bullenbitjer." These were large, muscular Mastiff-type canines with extremely strong guarding and protective instincts. These dogs undoubtedly were bred with native domestic South African dogs. The Great Trek inland that started in the 1800s, as a result of Dutch and other European colonists protest to tight British rule in southern Africa. Resulted in the Boer dogs being scattered across the region. Those that survived the harsh environment were exceptionally hardy, trustworthy, adaptable and loyal. They lived with people who were isolated from the rest of the world and relied on them for guarding, herding and companionship. These dogs were a primary line of defense against all predators, both wild and human. They also were used to track and hold down wounded game, until the hunters could retrieve it and use it as a source of food. Sometime in the 1930s, Bullmastiffs were brought to South Africa by the De Beers diamond company to guard their mines. These dogs played an important role in the development of the Boerboel. Rhodesian Ridgebacks and their descendants likely contributed to the Boerboel as well.

Cry of the Children clip 1912 Thanhouser Film Company
Early filmmaker Edwin Thanhouser produced this film to draw attention to the exploitation of child labor. The film is presented in three settings. This clip is from the first scene which shows the dangerous working conditions that children faced in a textile mill. The second scene centers on a factory worker's run-down home and the poverty-stricken lifestyle of the working class. In sharp contrast, the third scene goes inside a millowner's opulent home and focuses on the arrogance of the wealthy aristocracy who exploited millworkers. The film's title is adapted from Elizabeth Barrett Browning's 1843 social protest poem "The Cry of the Children." The poem contributed to labor reform in the mines of England. The antique sentimental quality of the poem contrasts sharply with the gritty realism of the visual images. Likewise, the story contrasts scenes of the mill owner's home life with that of the poor working family. In its day, The Cry of the Children, it was recognized as one of the most important expressions of the pre-World War One reform movement, in particular child labor. This film was part of a wave of "social problem" films released during the 1910s that championed social reform and demanded change. Depicting the hardships of child textile workers, the silent film included real footage of children working in mills, which caused controversy when it was released in 1912. "The Cry of the Children" was recognized by an influential critic of the time as "The boldest, most timely and most effective appeal for the stamping out of the cruelest of all social abuses." The film marked the emerging political power of film, and the potential for making contributions to society. By 1900, the mechanization and deskilling of labor in the textile industry in the US enabled factory owners to eliminate skilled workers and employ large numbers of unskilled immigrant workers, the majority of whom were women. Work in a textile mill took place at a grueling pace and the labor was repetitive and dangerous. In addition, a number of children under the age of 14 worked in the mills. For example, half of the workers at the leading employer in the industry and were girls between 14 and 18. By 1912, conditions had grown even worse for workers in the decade before and finally worker in the town of Lawrence, Massachusetts struck for two months in what is often referred to as the "Bread and Roses" strike. The workers in Lawrence lived in crowded and dangerous apartment buildings, often with many families sharing each apartment. Many families survived on bread, molasses, and beans. The mortality rate for children was 50% by age six; 36 out of every 100 men and women who worked in the mill died by the time they reached 25. For more on the history of child labor in the past and issue today, go to the website of the National Child Labor Committee at http://www.nationalchildlabor.org/ . Another excellent resource is the Young Worker Safety & Health Network, an organization of individuals who have, as a common goal, the safety of youth in the workplace. The Network was founded at the 1997 and is comprised of researchers, educators, medical specialists, pediatricians, government and other interested persons. For more on the Young Worker Safety & Health Network, go to the webpage http://www.osha.gov/SLTC/teenworkers/networkmembers.html . Cry of the Children is the most famous and best documented of all Thanhouser Film Company films and was selected in 2011 for inclusion on the National Film Registry by the National Film Preservation Board of the Library of Congress for its cultural, historical and aesthetic significance.

Exploring the Abandoned Silver Jack Mine (Part 1)
PART II: https://youtu.be/GnvtOFVAKDM PICTURES: https://flic.kr/s/aHskDS89b9 The Silver Jack Mine was a large silver mine located in the state of Nevada. This mine has over 8 miles of underground workings. In this video, we explore 3 of the 4 main adits. The 4th adit was caved only 20ft in. The mine was discovered in the mid 1800's - most of the work here was done prior to 1900. As you can see from the video, this mine's enormous stopes made it a profitable operation. Thanks for watching! Abandoned mines are extremely dangerous, Mines of the West does not recommend entering abandoned mines. This video is for entertainment purposes only. Stay out stay alive!

Fascinating Places On Google Earth
From bizarre patterns in the desert, impossible discoveries in the Netherlands, here are 20 Fascinating Things on Google Earth! Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 7.Spotted Lake This strange lake found in British Colombia canada looks extremely bizarre on google maps and at first glance you would really have no idea what it is! This is from a complex mix of minerals deposited here such as calcium, magnesium sulfate, and sodium sulphates. Strangely enough, it also contains small amounts of titanium and silver. This was originally known to the native people and they referred to it as the Kliluk. They felt as though it was a sacred site. They felt as though the waters were therapeutic and had healing qualities to it. 6. Rhyolite Nevada You can do a little bit of google urban exploring in the city of Rhyolite Nevada which was once a prosperous gold mining.Just outside of Beatty, Nevada Rhyolite had a population of 10,000 people at one point which was quite a lot for a city out west at this time. At one point it had a total of 50 saloons, 35 gambling tables and even some brothel There’s much to explore in this spooky ghost town and as well as abandoned mines left over from over a century ago. It’s interesting to take a quick look if you’re into spooky abandoned things in the middle of nowhere. 5. Nevada Circle There’s lots of strange stuff going on in the nevada desert. Many are quite confused with the presence of the Nevada Circle located east of beatty.Here we see a sun or a star shaped pattern, also in the middle of nowhere, at least 5 miles from the closest paved road.The circle itself is about 800 feet in diameter and inside the triangles, there appears to be some kind of structure that’s hard to identify. Some believe this is actually a desert form of crop circle, left here by aliens! So clear explanation has been given on it. You’ll find more strange patterns just north of this place. 4. OIl Wells Argentina Argentina has been known for being one of the top oil producers in the world and we can tell from this place on google maps that it’s certainly shaped their landscape. This area in Rio Negro has been dotted with thousands of oil wells all in a dense formation. It’s a little surreal in a sense and when you zoom in, you notice most of the time, nothing is really there! It makes you wonder, even after all the oil is gone, how it will shape the environment. 3. Groom Mine We’re sure you’ve already thoroughly explored area 51 with google maps already but you might have missed something small. Located just a couple miles from the infamous top secret military base is Groom Mine. Turns out someone’s been living there the entire time since the 1800’s and could know the truth about Area 51! They’ve been one of the very few people who’ve allowed to stay on the Nevada National Security site, since they technically were there first. This might remind you of that movie, the hills have eyes, where a family encounters mutants who’ve been living on a bombing range. Anyways, according to some sources, they’ve had one heck of a view of nuclear bombs going off, experimental aircraft. And you thought your next door neighbors were bad! A couple years ago, the mining family relocated to Las Vegas and groom mine has been abandoned! Will the people who’ve lived here ever share their secrets? 2. Body Disposal? A mysterious image popped up on google maps at Beatrix park in the netherlands of what many people on reddit thought was a person dragging a dead body to the pier, leaving a bloody trail. The shadowy unidentifiable figure was taken by google earth helicopter. But was this really a body disposal in mid daylight or could it have actually been a soggy golden retriever that went running. After close analysis, it turned out that it was a golden retriever and water was responsible for the murder trail. Mt. Vesuvius We’re all familiar with mount vesuvius as being the volcano that destroyed the city of Pompeii in 79 AD but in modern times, the volcano is certainly capable of causing more destruction. With about 3 million people in italy living near the volcano, and 300,000 of them living in the red zone, it’s certainly the most dangerous volcano in all of Europe. It’s only 7.5 miles away from the city of downtown Naples. Take a look at it on google maps and you’ll notices it’s basically surrounded by people and houses. Scientists also claim that this active volcano is much overdue for an explosion. You can also zoom in quite close to the crater as well and drop the pin man there. Imagine taking a boat in the mediterranean sea and seeing this image of how Mt. Vesuvius with plumes of ash coming out of it! It would terrifying!

When A Coin Spill Saves The Day
A metal detecting adventure with one small and one bigger coin spill. My hunting trip started bad. The bottom of a hill I decided to begin with turned out to be a junkyard... The reason for it was a narrow road higher up. It's always the same... People use this type of places to drive in with a car and unload trash (probably at night). I knew right away what I'm dealing with and decided not to waste time and energy, trying to find something underneath, that probably isn't there... I went higher, my plan was to "hike" with a detector and scout this area. As I was standing on the road, I saw the reminds of a garden. It looked like an abandoned vineyard to be more specific. A few coil swings revealed not a very promising picture. I was dealing with iron and industrial junk. Just an average "poor mans" vineyard from the WWII era (without potential). I was able to find a coin from 1941 and a badge (a seal for productivity). At some point I heard noises very close behind the bushes followed by dark shapes. It was a boar family! I decided to prepare for an encounter and change the position, as I was trapped by trees and bushes. I'm not scared of boar, but they could be scared of me, start panicking and eventually attack (especially if there are baby-boars close by). In this case it would be wise to have an object between (like a tree). But, nothing happened (as expected). They probably heard the strange noise of my (Deus) metal detector and thought: "What is a chicken doing in the forest?" I decided to leave this hopeless place and went further up the hill. It was a rather frustrating walk. I didn't had the feeling like something good could pop out any second. The terrain was probably "changed" by man and filled with trash. Everything pointed to relatively modern (20th century) activities. I crossed a path, but spotted many fresh traces in the mud. This can only mean that probably sooner than later, other people will show up. Metal detecting on a narrow path automatically leads to conversations. When I'm in "hunting mode", I'm not really in the mood for it (especially with people asking the same questions). I decided to leave a few possible nice finds and disappear in the bushes... I went right to the bottom part and found a cow bell on my way. Unfortunately once again my main camera stopped working. When I reached a small valley with dense vegetation, I still had my macro cam left. I thought, if something can be found at this location, this must be the place to look for. At first it looked like I was wrong, but soon I could make my first find (a coin from 1924). This was the beginning of a coin spill. Actually two coin spills not related to each other. The first "50 Reichspfennig" coin looked like silver, but I knew right away that it was nickle. It has a specific shade. Both coins were actually in a much better shape, than silver coins I usually find. The other "50 Reichspfennig" coin was a little bit older. Both were dropped by the same person just a few inches apart. The second coin spill was from the modern era (1958-2001). The core of these coins was made of iron. It was fun to recover all the coins, even when they were not that old. A coin spill is a coin spill. It is always something special no matter what coins I find. Both coin spills really saved the day. Thanks for watching.

Amazing Vintage Photographs of America's Children From the Late 19th Century to the 1930s
Although children had been servants and apprentices throughout most of human history, child labor reached new extremes during the Industrial Revolution. Children often worked long hours in dangerous factory conditions for very little money. Children were useful as laborers because their size allowed them to move in small spaces in factories or mines where adults couldn’t fit, children were easier to manage and control and perhaps most importantly, children could be paid less than adults. Child laborers often worked to help support their families, but were forced to forgo an education. Nineteenth century reformers and labor organizers sought to restrict child labor and improve working conditions, but it took a market crash to finally sway public opinion. During the Great Depression, Americans wanted all available jobs to go to adults rather than children. Below is a galley of 50 amazing vintage photographs of America's children from between the 1850s and 1930s.
