For a time coal was king in West Virginia. Today,most of the mines have closed, and many of the towns are gone.  To tell thestory of generations of hard working West Virginians-both coal miners andenterprising businessmen-we have mainly fading memories and old photographs.Volume 2 tells the story of Beckley when it was the Capitol of theCoalfields.  It also tells the story of many once vibrant towns, some ofwhich no longer exist.  Watch as West Virginia moved into a new century: asburgeoning coal towns filled with churches, schools, stores, and theatres.
