Schuylkill County, PA: 100th Anniversary.
"The Queen of the Anthracite Region” passed its 100th anniversary in 1911 and a Pottsville department store, Dives, Pomeroy and Stewart, celebrated the occasion with a brief county history. Usually such ventures are underwritten by centennial commissions, or by history-minded individuals, but we will take it where we can get it. This is largely an industrial history, which is not unexpected given the prominence of the coal mining business in that locale. The Molly Maguires rate a mention, and the contribution of this county to the Union during the Civil War was considerable. 114+ pages, PDF format, download now for $4.75.
