Abstract:
The Carolina Coal Mine, located in the village of Coal Glen in Chatham County, was the scene of the worst mining disaster in the state's history. On May 27, 1925, three explosions rocked the mine and killed fifty-three men, half the adult male population of the town. An improperly set dynamite blast was the cause. The mine closed during the Depression, reopened in 1947, and closed for good in 1953.
