Fort Bragg in Mendocino County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
The men who worked with dynamite were called "powder monkeys." Frequent contact with nitroglycerin, the explosive ingredient in dynamite, can cause neurological damage, as well as other problems. Reportedly, the powder monkeys became a bit deranged and didn't always exercise the best judgement - ironic considering their work with high explosives.
