I just spoke yesterday with the President of the New River Heritage Coalition on the history of VA Anthracite. I am meeting with them next month for some future articles but, if you all are interested I can get you all some contact info. A tid bit of info he gave me was the town of Merrimac was named so after the mine there supplied coal to the Confederate ship Merrimac in the battle against the Monitor.They are also trying to start an exhibition coal mine and I'm sure you all could give them some advice. Thanks
