Long Description:
This is a bronze life sized statue that was dedicated September 3rd, 2011 during the Shawnee Ohio homecoming. This statue shows a miner hard at work in a tight coal seam on his knee removing material from the roof with his pick axe as this is the way many of the miners had to work, sometimes even worse than that on there backs or stomachs trying to remove the ore. He appears to be wearing the soft cap and carbide light from days gone by before mining safety improved. Also cast into the statue is the Knights of Labor insignia. (visit link)
Sector of the workforce: Mining

Created or Donated by which group: This statue was made possible from the generosity of the Sunday Creek Associates and Shawnee.
