        Red Metal: Conditions in the Copper Mines

        In this clip from Red Metal: The Copper Country Strike of 1913, learn about mining conditions in the copper mines in Michigan, and see early 20th century photographs illustrating the “most dangerous occupation in America.” This clip also introduces the mining company Calumet & Hecla, which was at one point the world’s leading copper producer, as well as the harsh living and working conditions in the mining town of Calumet, Michigan, in the early 20th century.
