Season 3 Episode 2 | 28m 46s | Video has closed captioning.

Long before oil, coal was Oklahoma’s first energy boom. Immigrants came to Indian Territory who went into the mines and dug in the dark, it was a dirty and dangerous way to eke out a meager living. OETA’s award winning documentary series Back in Time looks to a time when coal barons became rich while miners would go to work before sunrise and come home after dark.
