Welsh in Coal Creek
"The Welsh of Tennessee" (2012) by Dr. Eirug Davies of Harvard University tells how Welsh miners and iron workers helped East Tennessee rebuild after the American Civil War, while preserving their native language and culture. That book recognizes research by Briceville students, proving that learning is an unbroken circle in Coal Creek.
