A Butte, Montana Story

1-hour Documentary, TG4


America’s richest mining town was built by heroic Irish men who risked their lives miles below the surface at the turn of the century. Thousands of men flocked to the mid-western boom town in the 1900s because the wages in the copper, gold and silver mines were the highest in the New World. But it was dangerous work and many died in pursuit of gold.
